Pain Killer Addiction
When you are in pain, whether it is psychological, emotional, mental or physical, you can
feel extremely desperate for a way out. Every year, thousands of people become addicted
to pain medication which is meant to help them manage their pain, while they search for
a solution to the underlying problem.
Instead, many people find it difficult to
even handle their lives at this point, and
the pain medication helps them to feel
better, if temporarily. Thus, the
beginning of their pain killer addiction is
created. This can continue until their life
is sufficiently messed up and distorted
that they begin using other, quicker
Yes, illicit drug abuse and alcohol abuse
are forms of pain management. It is the
irresponsible, childish way out of your
problem, and yes, it works every time. Unfortunately, the temporary solution can begin to
squeeze out the time spent in the real world, among ordinary people and with real world
solutions to problems. This way of handling things is the difference between pain
management and pain killer addiction. The healthy approach only controls the pain, while
the unhealthy approach starts to control all portions of your life.
That is what addiction is. Addiction is the point at which you begin to allow your life to
be controlled for you, rather than the other way around. Since this lack of personal
responsibility over your life is not very acceptable in today’s society, addicts hide this
choice and act as if they are in control, when in fact they are still choosing to allot control
of their lives over to others or to chance.
Any kind of addiction, no matter what type it may be, can manifest itself in the
professional world. That is why drug testing Australia has some help from Mediscreen.
