How did you get addicted to drugs?
If you take prescription painkillers every day of the week, the odds of addiction are stacked against you. It’s not a matter of whether you have morals or willpower. Opiate addiction is a true medical condition that occurs because of the way that certain chemical compounds affect the brain. Opiate drugs, also known as narcotics, trigger a massive release of specialized brain hormones, including serotonin. These endorphin hormones alleviate pain and cause feelings of euphoria. At least they do the first time you use them. It doesn’t take long for the brain to become so used to the overload of feel-good endorphins; it starts to need more of the drug to feel the same way. The brain may even stop making its endorphins without a narcotic trigger. Opiate addiction is virtually impossible to stop without the compassionate guidance of Tucson rehab centers.
Prescription drugs may seem harmless because doctors people trust recommends them. An accident happens, someone goes into the emergency room for treatment. They leave with a prescription for Vicodin or another strong pain relief medicine. The prescription runs out after a few days, and the patient calls their doctor for a refill. If this happens enough times, the patient may be dealing with more than physical pain. They may be physically dependent on opiates. It happens a lot, and maybe this happened to you or someone that you love. Fortunately, confidential help is available right now at many private Tucson rehab centers.
Of course, not all prescriptions that cause addiction are opiate painkillers. Good people in Arizona find themselves with all kinds of bad drug problems. Sometimes, people try a friend’s prescription.
Sometimes, they misuse their own. Tucson rehab centers help with addiction to:
- Anti-anxiety medications and sedatives: Xanax, Valium, and Ambien
- Stimulants: Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, and Dexedrine
- Opioids: Oxycontin, Roxicodone, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine, and Norco
