Narcotics Abuse

Narcotics Abuse

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) provides stark numbers when quantifying the effect of drug addiction. They estimate that accidental overdoses that can be attributed to the abuse of prescription narcotics have increased a whopping four times over since 1999. Since more than 200 million narcotics are prescribed per year, the drugs' accessibility contributes to their potential for abuse. Combating the serious problems that these substances present can largely depend on users' and loved ones' abilities to recognize the signs of narcotic abuse. When physical and psychological symptoms of abuse have been identified, addicts can confront their dependencies and decide to get sober. At BetterAddictionCare, we cater to our clients by helping them find the right rehab facility so that their addictions can become a part of the past and sobriety can light the way to a bright future.

An increasing tolerance to these drugs and a rise in the frequency of ingestion are common narcotic abuse symptoms. As addicts slip into deeper and more severe addictions, their cravings for drugs become more intense and they may seek to ingest them without medical need or even when there are immediate and serious consequences of drug usage. For addicts, there may be little that can get in the way of acquiring and indulging in narcotics. Substance abusers who find it difficult to temper an addiction or decrease the dosage may encounter trouble when trying to detox on their own. medically-assisted detoxification monitored by specialists like those found in our recovery network have high success rates and prioritize safe withdrawal to increase the chances of addiction recovery.

Noticeable signs of narcotic abuse include euphoria and a tendency to doze off at inappropriate times. The sedation associated with narcotics leads to drowsiness and depression of the respiratory system. Some addicts may experience constipation and confusion, as narcotics compromise both physical and psychological function. In severe addictions, narcotic abuse symptoms can be anything but comfortable and can lead to duplicitous and secretive behavior, including stealing and lying to obtain multiple prescriptions from different doctors. Abuse of narcotics can also create circumstances that result in financial difficulties and chaos within interpersonal and professional relationships.
