Treatment of Painkiller Addiction
Painkillers are prescription opioid medications used to treat severe pain. They are often abused for their ability to elevate mood, alleviate pain, and produce euphoria. Painkiller abuse can wreak havoc in a person’s life including their physical and mental health, relationships, and work performance. Inpatient or outpatient drug rehab with a medically-assisted detox program and psychotherapy can help people with opioid use disorder return to a healthier life.
