Sometimes prescription drug addiction just happens. If you had a bad injury or are recovering from a surgery, often times we are placed on pain relieving medication. We take and take and take, and before we know it, we are addicted. Sometimes it’s just an accident, but it needs to be taken care of. The first step would be to not stop taking the medication but contact the doctor who prescribed them to you and explain that you may have become addicted.
