Understanding Prescription Drug Addiction

Prescription drug addiction involves medications that are legally prescribed for valid medical reasons but are used in a manner or dose other than prescribed, or taken by individuals without a prescription. Commonly abused prescription drugs include opioid painkillers, benzodiazepines, stimulants for attention deficit disorder, and sedatives for anxiety or sleep disorders.

Prescription drug misuse is a significant public health issue in Massachusetts, with an estimated 4.6% of residents abusing prescription medications. This misuse can lead to addiction, overdose, and even death, particularly with opioids which are responsible for the majority of overdose deaths in the state.

Risks and Consequences of Prescription Drug Addiction

Addiction to prescription drugs can lead to severe physical and psychological health complications. Risks include increased tolerance, dependence, and in many cases, fatal overdose. Psychological effects can include mood instability, depression, and anxiety.

Signs of Prescription Drug Addiction

  • Physical Symptoms: Drowsiness, unsteady walking, nausea, and altered physical appearance.
