Painkiller Addiction Treatment and Rehabilitation

Life Works – the leading specialist in Painkiller and Prescription Addiction treatment.

Painkiller addiction and prescription drug addiction is a growing problem in today’s society. While many people avoid drugs like cocaine and heroin, they assume prescriptions and Painkillers are safe. This makes identifying a prescription painkiller addiction very difficult.

Addicts can easily hide or deny they have a problem because the drug they are addicted to comes from a doctor. Some of the most commonly associated drugs with prescription painkiller addiction are tranquilisers, codeine Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, Monoamine Oxydase and 'Downers'.

If you are struggling with prescription or painkiller addiction, Life Works can help. You can call us at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form

Signs & symptoms of Prescription and Painkiller Addiction

Prescription drug and painkiller addiction symptoms can take many forms. That is what makes it so difficult to diagnose. People with an addiction to prescpritions or painkillers can show many, seemingly contradictory symptoms. The best way to know if someone has a prescription or painkiller addiction is to have them assessed by a professional. They can spot the symptoms of prescription and painkiller addiction, like taking medication long after you are due to stop, inventing illnesses to get more medication, visiting different doctors under different names to get more prescriptions or painkillers, feeling spaced out, frustrated or tired when you do not take your prescriptions or painkiller and sacrificing your social life or lying to get more prescriptions or painkillers.

If any of these prescription or painkiller addiction symptoms apply to you, call Life Works at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
