Drug addiction is a problem within the US, Canada and throughout the world.
Illegal drugs finance many criminal enterprises. However, a sad but true fact is that sometimes, a person who is taking a prescription drug can fall victim to the same problem: drug addiction.
Percocet and Percodan are common prescription drugs that, when not used properly, can turn into major drug abuse situations. These two medications are used to help a person with pain relief that simple over the counter medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen cannot control. The severity of pain that requires such pain relievers can often have the person trying to alleviate such horrendous pain altogether and this is how the addiction can start.
A Counsellor can help a family to support their love ones in this process of overcoming the addiction. Get help today.
Becoming addicted to Percocet or Percodan, especially when one has never had a drug problem before, can be met with denial. Families may have a much harder time convincing a loved one that he or she is addicted to a prescription drug than if the person had been on marijuana, cocaine or alcohol. For some reason, some people think there is an “embarrassment” related to a prescription drug addiction when this is not the case, it is simply another form of drug addiction that needs to be addressed because it is just as difficult to overcome as any other addiction.
With denial, being the first belief of the person on Percocet or Percodan, a Counsellor can help a family to support the person with the problem and help him to recognize that he indeed, does have an addiction and treatment is available. Prescription drug addictions can sometimes be the most emotional interventions because denial can be such a strong element in these type of situations.
* Counsellors at Drug Rehab Centers can help a family set up an Intervention.
A Drug Rehab Center can help a person to come to terms with his addiction to Percocet or Percodan and successfully overcome the addiction. It is treated with the same integrity and seriousness as any other substance abuse problem and people can leave the treatment program stronger and with a support group that helps him to keep winning out over the addiction, once he returns out in the world. If you have an addiction to Percocet or Percodan or know someone who does, it is important to understand that you are not alone. Prescription drug addictions are a lot more common than some might think, but they can also be just as successfully overcome when dealt with head on.
