Marijuana Addiction & Recovery

Marijuana Addiction & Recovery

Public acceptance for marijuana has reached a peak. Now legal in many states, a recent survey by the Pew Research Center shows that 53% of Americans favor its legal use. But using marijuana occasionally is one thing. Being addicted to it–and treating it as a potentially stepping stone to other addictions–is another. Public acceptance aside, marijuana addiction is dangerous–and can seriously disrupt your life.
Heroin: An Epidemic

Heroin: An Epidemic

Like other opioids, heroin manipulates the pleasure portion of your brain. It releases floods of dopamine and endorphins, which remove pain, causing intense euphoria and a temporary sense of well-being.
OxyContin

OxyContin

If you fear that you, or a loved one, might be addicted to OxyContin, it’s important not to judge. It’s entirely possible that you became addicted to OxyContin without ever setting out to abuse it. Perhaps all you did was simply follow the doctor’s instructions.
Adderall

Adderall

If you are worried about your Adderall dependence, you have come to the right place. The first step is acknowledging your dependency. Adderall is a prescription medicine that can improve focus especially in patients diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Growing numbers of students and other success-driven people may take it just to concentrate better at school or work. Then, they get hooked.
Xanax

Xanax

Xanax is a benzodiazepine, prescribed to treat panic and anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (or GAD). In fact, Xanax is very effective at treating these–and it rapidly slows and relaxes the mind, alleviating anxiety and panic nearly instantly. Largely for that reason, Xanax is very often prescribed to sufferers of anxiety–in fact, it’s one of the most prescribed medications in America.
Opiates

Opiates

Perhaps your story starts like so many others: Your doctor prescribes a pain pill, an opiate such as Percocet or OxyContin , to treat your acute chronic pain. You start to feel better so you take more than prescribed because more is better, right? The next thing you know, the pills begin to lose their effectiveness. So you take them more often.
Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine addiction is a uniquely painful experience for users and their loved ones alike. Though some may claim that cocaine is not physically addictive, research has shown that it has powerful, lasting effects on the brain that make it one of the most addictive drugs in the world.
Methamphetamines

Methamphetamines

When basic human needs like food, sex, and thirst are satisfied, our brains release dopamine–stimulating the pleasure center. Meth (methamphetamine) activates that same system, causing a rush of pleasure that artificially rewards the user with a prolonged high.
Vicodin

Vicodin

To manage pain, doctors prescribe vicodin to tens of millions of Americans each year. The medication combines two different drugs hydrocodone, a powerfully addictive painkiller, and acetaminophen, a non-steroidal pain reliever. Hydrocodone is an opioid painkiller, and may cause intense feelings of pleasure and relaxation. The weaker (and less addictive) of the two, acetaminophen can damage the liver in larger doses. The combination relieves pain–and creates pleasure.
Percocet Addiction & Treatment

Percocet Addiction & Treatment

Opiate drugs like Percocet become less effective over time. Your body develops a tolerance for the drug and needs more and more of it to achieve the same level of pain relief or “high.” This tolerance makes Percocet and similar drugs good candidates for abuse, even by people who start off taking it as prescribed. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to determine whether you have a Percocet addiction:
