Types of Drug Addiction Treatment

Prescription Painkiller Addiction Treatment

Prescription painkiller addiction treatment is often not recognised as necessary as painkillers are prescribed by your doctor. However prescription painkiller abuse is increasingly becoming one of the major causes of drug abuse. Prescription painkiller addiction treatment is needed when a prescribed drug is used more frequently and at higher doses than originally prescribed or when the prescribed drug continues to be taken after the original cause for administration has resolved. Due to this, prescription painkiller addiction is difficult to recognise and can quickly spiral out of control. Painkiller addiction treatment combined with a medically managed drug detox is provided by Life Works to assist individuals to come to terms with their addiction and help them break free of dependence on painkillers drugs.
