About Painkiller Addiction

Painkillers are a unique addiction that likely started out as a prescription for a true pain related need. Chronic pain affects many in the population and they are often given narcotic painkillers to deal with that pain. The truth is that these painkillers do ease pain, but also create a euphoric feeling. Only some become addicted to painkillers and there are warning signs along the way. If you find yourself constantly thinking of your medication, the next dose, or if you have enough to last than you may be addicted. Becoming addicted to painkillers is physical, mental, and emotional. You may find yourself doctor shopping to gain more medications or finding other sources for further painkillers. This means you have an addiction and help should be sought. In-patient treatment is best, a place to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. Do not let your addiction go unchecked any longer.
