Prescription Drug Addiction

An Ongoing Health Crisis

Prescription drug addiction is one of the most pervasive and deadly addiction threats in the United States. Although federal crackdowns and community efforts have diminished their overall impact, prescription drugs like opioid painkillers and benzodiazepines are still responsible for thousands of deaths each year. Even in the wake of national reform, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that 52 million Americans have used prescription drugs for non-medical purposes in their lifetime. Approximately 16 million have reported improper use of prescriptions in the past year and nearly seven million report improper use in the past month. Many heroin addicts start off abusing prescription opioids right here in the Lone Star State, making the need for quality Texas prescription drug treatment more urgent than ever.

Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs

The most commonly abused prescriptions include prescription opioid painkillers, benzodiazepines and stimulants. Users may start off taking these drugs for “innocent” reasons, including pain and anxiety relief and as study-aids. Unfortunately, even users who take these drugs as prescribed can wind up dependent on them. Some of the more commonly abuse brand-name prescriptions include:

Opioid Painkillers:

  • OxyContin
  • Vicodin
  • Percocet
  • Actiq
  • Duragesic

Benzodiazepines:

  • Xanax
  • Klonopin
  • Valium
  • Ativan
  • Halcion

Stimulants:

  • Adderall
  • Ritalin

Signs of Prescription Drug Addiction

Identifying prescription drug addiction in a loved one may be more difficult given the legal nature of these drugs. Users can often hide behind the fact that they have a prescription. By the time their loved ones realize that pills are being used improperly, it may be too late. There are, however, some tell-tale physical and behavioral signs to look for if you believe that someone you care about is abusing prescription drugs, including:

  • Sudden and Erratic Changes in Mood
  • Extreme Aggression
  • Paranoia
  • Watching the Clock in Anticipation of the Next Dose
  • Extreme Changes in Weight
  • Sunken Eyes
  • Changes in Sleeping Patterns
  • Decline in Academic or Professional Life
