Product Description

    Details

    Prescription drug abuse has reached epidemic proportions and many consider it a full blown health crisis. The cycle of painkiller use, dependency and addiction is not slowing down, in fact it's growing at a steady pace. In 2015 more than 50,000 people lost their lives to drug overdoses and many of those deaths were linked to the abuse of prescription pain medications and the use of heroin and as a replacement source of pain relief. However, those truly in pain should not be scared to take prescribed pain medication to help them heal and manage their pain levels. Properly taking, managing and disposing of pain medication can help you avoid a path to addiction.

    This pamphlet covers the importance of properly taking medication in accordance to the instructions provided by a doctor, to have a support system to help you understand what you are taking and how you should be taking it, and ask your doctor to prescribe the lowest dose and amount of pain medication needed to control your type of pain. Following these basic steps should help you avoid overtaking or abusing your prescription drugs, while still managing pain.

    The Prescription to Addiction pamphlet also explains the warning signs of addiction and withdrawal so that one can recognize behaviors and physical effects these drugs can cause that can lead to substance abuse. Noticing warning signs early can help you get help quickly and prevent a more serious problem.

    The pamphlet then covers the three main drivers that lead to prescription drug abuse: Sharing medication or taking it from an unprescribed source, Not properly storing or disposing of drugs, and addiction leading to stronger, deadlier drugs. The pamphlet also provides information to receive support if you believe you are addicted or may become addicted.
