Painkiller Addiction

Call 07976247833

We work with a number of different patients who are addicted to prescription drugs and painkillers. Patients frequently find that they have developed a dependency on painkillers following the prescription of medication from their GP.

Patients find that the NHS is not necessarily able to offer them the level of help that they require and they often turn to us for other options for treatment and support.

At Recover, we will work closely with you to find the best painkiller addiction treatment available. Our advice is confidential, impartial, and provided by a qualified therapist.

What are painkillers?
Painkillers are legal drugs, provided that people have been prescribed them by them their GP or have bought them over the counter – this does not however mean that they are not highly addictive. Patients develop both emotional and physical dependencies on painkillers and frequently require a medically assisted detox if they wish to stop using.

These drugs are often prescribed to induce sedation and sleep, treat anxiety and muscle spasms and to prevent or cease seizures. In high doses these types of drugs will act as a hypnotic and in low doses symptoms are similar to that of a sedative.
