In most cases, addiction to prescription medication is the direct result of the medication being appropriately prescribed for legitimate medical problems. The person rarely had any preconceived plans to abuse the medication, but two factors come into play. The individual may experience some relief from the drug, in conjunction with experiencing the euphoric feeling produced by many prescription medications. Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, the person begins to take additional medication. This decision is usually made independent of the physician who prescribed the medication and before the person realizes it, they find themselves with a mental obsession regarding the medication and a craving for more.
People have also been known to take prescription medication to deal with emotional problems. The only thing most of these medications do for emotional problems are "mask or numb" the actual feelings. Although the person may not experience the feeling or focus on the problem at a particular moment, in most cases, the problem is just exasperated by not learning how to effectively cope with the particular issue.
Lastly, people have been found to mix alcohol with prescription medications to accentuate the feeling of euphoria. They like to refer to this mixture as a "cocktail". What this creates is the potential for an overdose and should be avoided at all costs. If you require additional information on prescription medication addiction or need to locate a treatment center able to effectively treat this problem, please call Affordable Rehab of Edison at call (201) 241-3132 and we will be more than happy to assist you.
Users of heroin may become addicted due to insecurities or frustrations that dominant their life. They may be facing problems at home or in family life which leads them to trying it and then becoming addicted to it. They may live in an environment where it is easily available and supported or encouraged by their friends. Usually, those trying other drugs stumble upon heroin and may derive more satisfaction from it to become addicted. In some cases it is the lack of education and hardships which push people toward it.
Some people are more prone to drug addiction than others, but all usually start recreationally or when they suffer from excessive stress and anxiety. The people who are constantly surrounded by occasional users of these drugs tend to have higher chances of being addicts.
Other facts that can cause addiction are your surrounding environment, family history for addiction, and your genes.
This addiction can further develop over time if you are not careful. People start relying on these drugs either because they make them feel good, or because they stop them from feeling bad about something.
