Drug Treatment in Baltimore Needed Following Warning Signs

Drug Treatment in Baltimore MD - The Bergand Group

It can be difficult to admit that a loved one is in need of drug treatment in Baltimore, that they may be abusing a prescription for opioids. How can you tell what is ‘normal’ use and what could be considered abuse, and how do you then bring it up with them?

Signs That They Need Drug Treatment in Baltimore

The NCBI reported that “11 million people in the U.S. use opioids for non-prescribed purposes.” This is a huge number of people who are using these drugs for reasons other than their original purpose. Opioids are dangerous for a number of reasons including that they are seemingly easy to obtain and to pass on to others.

If you suspect that someone you know may be doing just this, then you may be eager to make sure and to then take action to steer them away from continued use. Some of the signs include:

  • Getting in touch frequently with their doctor about refills and pain levels, or even contacting multiple doctors
  • Reporting that past prescriptions have somehow disappered
  • Refusal to try other pain relief methods that are not opioids
  • Using the pills for other purposes, such as as a sleep aid
  • Taking more than the prescribed dose

And more. These are not necessarily signs of misuse in everyone, however they may be a sign that your loved one needs attention to curtail their dangerous habits.

The CDC “tells us that… physicians wrote nearly 250,000,000 prescriptions for opioids. That’s enough for nearly every adult in the U.S. to have received one bottle.” This is a staggering number, one that needs to be cut back immediately. Start  by helping the ones you love, and then we as a nation can turn our attention to the greater issue.
