Individuals who are suffering from physical pain can benefit from the use prescription painkillers when they are unable to carry out normal everyday activities because of pain that is caused by a medical condition, injury, or surgery. Prescription painkillers, many of which contain opioids, can be extremely dangerous if they are not consumed as prescribed by a professional. Improper use of prescription painkillers can lead to a variety of negative outcomes, including addiction.

Some individuals might consume prescription painkillers in an effort to self-medicate or simply to get high. Abusing painkillers this way can cause effects that are similar to those experienced by individuals who take them outside of a professional’s recommendations. When prescription painkiller abuse becomes regular, there is a great likelihood that an individual will become addicted to them. As a result, professional treatment might be needed in order to end this kind of chemical dependency.

If you are addicted to prescription painkillers and need professional care to put a stop to your addiction, you can benefit from participating in a treatment center that provides detox. The process of detox can help you rid your body of deadly substances so that the withdrawal symptoms you experience can be lessened and other areas of your recovery can be focused on.

Withdrawal

What happens during painkiller withdrawal

If you start to abuse one or more prescription painkillers, you are likely not doing so with the intent of becoming addicted. However, when you try to end your abuse, the symptoms of withdrawal that you can experience can be very upsetting.

Since prescription painkillers and the abuse of them can cause tolerance to develop, which causes you to need to consume more and more of the medication in order to achieve the desired effects, withdrawal can happen when you stop using. When this occurs, withdrawal symptoms such as muscle and bone pain, restlessness, cravings, and irritability can make getting sober almost impossible to do on your own.

However, by reaching out for help at a treatment center that provides detox, you can be made comfortable during this part of the recovery process.
