Painkillers either prescribed or purchased are one of the most popular drug addictions in the UK. Usually recommended to help reduce physical and psychological pain, a stated dosage per individual will be communicated. However, for those using painkillers over a long period of time, tolerances can increase, leading to higher doses, ultimately developing to a drug dependency.
Most painkiller addictions begin innocently. The usual scenario includes an individual taking painkillers to curb any discomfort. However, as the body gets used to a consistent consumption, less effect occurs. With greater need for comfort, greater doses are taken, leading to a painkiller fixation.
Although painkillers may not be classified as dangerous when comparing to the likes of cocaine and crystal meth, high consistent consumption can lead to mental health and physical disorders. Not to mention the usual effects addiction has on an individual’s quality of life.
Are you or a family member suffering with a painkiller addiction? Has an innocent prescription developed into drug abuse? Are you experiencing withdrawal symptoms between doses? If so, to protect your own future, painkiller rehab will be recommended.

This is where our medical experts will slowly reduce your painkiller consumption, until you a reach a point where neither your body or mind require them. Please be aware that completing a detoxification alone is dangerous, therefore always seek medical advice when concerning your addiction.
Once we believe that you are ready to lead a positive future without painkillers, we will end your treatment and recommend a return home. However, prior to this, please be aware that we do recommend family therapy and copying sessions. This will ensure that when you do return home, your support network is strong, helping your recovery run smoothly.
