St. George, UT, September 07, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Drug abuse and drug addiction statistics
are startling. In recent years, prescription drug abuse and addiction has been continually on the rise. From painkillers like hydrocodone to sleeping pills like Ambien or anxiety medications like Xanax the number of prescriptions written for each type of drug increases every year. However, using any of these prescription drugs for a prolonged time can create higher tolerance levels in the person’s system so that they no longer get the same results. Often this results in the individual taking more than is prescribed to achieve the same effect which often leads to drug addiction or drug dependence.
Another common drug abuse problem is when a person takes the medication without a prescription to achieve a “high.” This is particularly dangerous because the person is not under a doctor’s care and does not have a prescribed dose for their body type. DrugRehab101.com has detailed articles with abuse statistics for each type of drug as well as addiction warning signs to look for and treatment options for people addicted to any type of medication or other substance.
