Painkiller Addiction Information

Being addicted to pain killers seems to be more and more common as every year passes. These drugs are becoming cheaper and easier than other street drugs to get a hold of.

People are becoming addicted to drugs like:

Vicodin

Oxycontin

Codeine

Percocet

Morphine

Fentanyl

There are many more, but these drugs are widely abused because of their availability and ease to get either on the streets or from a physician. Sometimes, people become addicted by accident, especially if they’re being treated for pain and under a doctor’s care. People who are suffering from a painkiller addiction are more likely to seek help than those who are addicted to heroin. This is most likely because the addiction was accidental and they are under the care of a physician who is helping them manage the pain.
