Prescription Drug Detox

Pain relief following an injury or surgery are among the most common reasons people take prescription drugs. For years, doctors have prescribed narcotics to relieve the severity of pain. Today, chemically based narcotics are still recommended for pain relief, but unfortunately these drugs are highlyabused. Common types are:

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin)
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
  • Morphine
  • Methadone
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are specific risk factors make people particularly vulnerable to prescription opioid abuse and overdose, including:

  • Taking high daily dosages of prescription pain relievers
  • Having overlapping prescriptions from multiple providers and pharmacies.
  • Having mental illness or a history of alcohol or other substance abuse.
  • Living in rural areas and having low income.
  • Prescription Drug Addiction

    Opiates and opioids provide pain relief by latching onto the opioid receptors in the brain. As brain chemicals travel throughout the central nervous system, they mask the experience of pain and deliver feelings of pleasure instead. This means narcotics depress the central nervous system. A user's perception of pain is reduced and in is replaced with a euphoric high. As more drugs are used, the body begins to develop a tolerance. To continue experiencing the same level of euphoria and pain relief, the amount of drugs must increase. Over time, repeated use of narcotic drugs can lead to a dependence and addiction.
