Although prescription pills are given to patients by doctors to treat a variety of ailments, they are not always safe. In many cases, included in the laundry list of possible side effects is the risk of becoming addicted to the drugs. In 2017, over 18 million Americans had misused a prescription medication in the last year.1 Although many people will stop there, frequent misuse can lead to dependence and addiction. Commonly abused prescription drugs include stimulants, tranquilizers, sedatives, and painkillers.
Pain Medication Addiction Treatment
Prescription painkillers especially have a high likelihood of being abused. It is estimated that between 21-29% of patients prescribed opioid painkillers for chronic pain will end up misusing them.2 Because of their high propensity for abuse, prescription painkillers are also one of the leading causes behind the opioid epidemic in the United States.

Because prescription opioids can be expensive and hard to get a hold of, some people who become addicted to these drugs will start abusing heroin. Heroin is stronger, cheaper, and usually more accessible, but it also comes with more dangers. At Seaside Palm Beach, we also offer luxury heroin addiction treatment for people who have graduated to this drug and are looking to regain control.
Signs Someone Needs Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment
Because these medications are prescribed by a doctor, it can be hard to tell whether someone needs prescription medication addiction treatment or if they are just sick. Drug abuse is typically accompanied by physical, mental, and behavioral changes that worsen as the addiction becomes more severe. Because prescription drugs are such an extensive group, the symptoms of abuse can vary dramatically.
Signs of a prescription pill addiction include:
- Empty pill bottle
- Taking medication for no apparent medical reason
- Doctor shopping
- Taking more medication than prescribed
- Lying about medication use or dosage
- Carrying pills everywhere
- Mood Swings
