Painkiller Addiction Treatment
Addiction to painkillers may start as simply using pain pills as a way to eliminate discomfort and sadly, can eventually turn into physical tolerance and dependence. Moreover, painkillers create a sense of euphoria and altered brain chemistry, which can lead to cravings and addictions.
According to the 2014 national survey on drug use and health, 21.5 million people (age 12 and up) in the U.S. had a substance use disorder. The CDC reported that 100 people in the U.S. die from drug overdoses every day, with three out of the four drug overdoses caused by opiates.
However, a major challenge for those struggling with substance abuse is a lack of meaning in life, which ultimately leads to a variety of health issues and recovery concerns.
At The Phoenix Recovery Center we offer individualized treatment programs for addiction recovery. In addition, we know and understand the science of chemical dependency with its associated neurological changes and its impact upon the pleasure system, emotions, learning, memory, motivation, and most importantly, the ability to exercise choice. We know and understand the biological and psychological science that support treatments in trauma, emotional disorders, and other mental health concerns.
