When we mention the word ‘addiction’, or ‘drug addict’ most people immediately assume that we are talking about either ‘recreational’ drugs (such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, etc.) or alcohol. But in recent years there has been a huge increase in the amount of people developing prescription drug addiction.

Drug Addiction & Abuse

Prescription drug Addiction

The increase has been well documented in Canada and the USA, where more people are dying from prescription medication overdoses than from heroin overdoses. In Middle East however, the studies and statistics have been a bit slow on the uptake, and only now are we starting to see the full extent of the prescription drug addiction problem in places such as egypt.

The most widely abused prescription drugs are opioids for pain such as OxyContin and Vicodin, central nervous system depressants such as Xanax and Valium, and stimulants such as Ritalin. Possibly the most dangerous and most popular of these three variants are opioid drugs.

Most people voluntarily take these drugs for a legitimate physical or mental health issue, but if they are vulnerable to addiction, or become dependent on the drug, it is very easy for them to fall into full time prescription drug addiction.

Prescription drug addiction is one of the hardest addictions to spot, as addicts are normally highly functioning individuals. However, OxyContin addiction or any other prescription drug addiction is life-threatening, and it’s important to get help. If you are worried that you or a loved one has developed an addiction to prescription drugs, you should get in touch with a professional right away.
