When a doctor prescribes medications, they are taking a patient’s medical history, body type, and condition into account. Most of the time, they are able to create a medication plan that is safe for the patient. However, whether from physician error or a patient mistakenly deviating from the prescribed medication plan, addiction to prescription medication sometimes occurs. What was intended to help is now causing significant harm.
It is not a sign of “weakness” or “bad character” to become addicted to prescription medications. It can happen to anyone. The only thing that matters when it comes to addiction is receiving treatment and maintaining sobriety.

Approaches to Treatment
Treatment for prescription drug addiction varies depending on what type
of drug is being abused. It is usually recommended that a person check
in to a detoxification center where they can safely purge the drug from
their system. Detox is not addiction treatment, however, and after this
