Prescription Medication Addiction

An addiction to prescription medication often begins after someone is prescribed the medication for pain following an accident or injury.

Prescription Medication Addiction

Overview

Both prescription medication misuse and abuse, as well as illicit drug use, originate from diverse causes, often rooted in physical, emotional, and/or psychological pain. At Six Seasons, we recognise the profound impact of drug misuse and dependency on health and wellbeing.

“Over half a million Australians are dependent on prescription painkillers, with addiction commencing in less than 2 weeks of regular use.”

Prescription medication addiction frequently initiates after an individual is prescribed medication for pain relief following an accident or injury. At Six Seasons, we acknowledge that various prescription medications have the potential to become addictive, including painkillers, anti-anxiety medications, sleeping pills, stimulants for ADHD, and antidepressants.

Addiction and withdrawal from prescription drugs can pose significant risks, underscoring the importance of support from family and friends to facilitate the individual’s access to treatment.
