Painkiller Addiction

Pensive depressed woman at psychologist counseling session


All it takes is a single prescription to become addicted to painkillers. These highly addictive drugs generate feelings of euphoria, which accounts for why so many users become dependent on them. The continuous use of painkillers often results in physical dependence as well, complete with withdrawal symptoms and tolerance issues. Users who abuse these drugs are considered psychologically dependent on painkillers.

Painkiller addiction has become a critical issue in the United States, particularly in the Southeast. The epidemic is especially pronounced in Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas, West Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia. In addition, prescription drug use is often cited in the northeastern states of Delaware, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Florida Addiction & Recovery Center accepts most PPO insurance plans, but the type of coverage that insurance companies provide varies from person to person.

Certain insurance providers reimburse members, and some require more work for the client to reap the benefits of his or her plan.
