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.

If this sounds familiar, you may be struggling with an opiate addiction, or perhaps someone close to you is struggling. It’s not unusual. According to the National Institutes of Health, about 9% of the population is believed to have an opiate dependence, including illegal drugs like heroin and prescription pain medications such as Percocet, Vicodin, Dilaudid, and OxyContin.

The first step is diagnosis.

Opiate addiction can happen easily.

As you try to replicate that first euphoric high (called chasing the dragon ), your body builds up a tolerance to the substance. So, you take more. You soon find that it no longer gives you the same buzz in fact, it makes you feel the opposite. But you are now chemically dependent on the drug, and your continued abuse can risk respiratory failure, high blood pressure, cardiac arrest, coma and even death. Opiate treatment is the best solution for your recovery. It’s time to seek help.
