The misconception that the use of prescription drugs is completely safe is a modern fallacy. Although doctors prescribe these drugs over the counter, the opportunities for addicts to abuse them are abundant. Prescription drug abuse occurs when anyone takes a scheduled drug in any capacity over and above the dosage prescribed by a doctor.Whether to achieve a high or to increase the tolerance to a particular drug, prescription drug abuse is rife in South Africa, and around the world. The danger presents itself when an addict, in an effort to stop the addiction, negates the prescription drug altogether.Rebound effects and chemical withdrawals often exacerbate the problem and expert medical help should be sought before one takes matters into their own hands to resolve an addiction. Just like illicit drugs, it is extremely dangerous to attempt detoxification from prescription drugs without professional aid.Read more on the dangers of prescription drug use here: bit.ly/3htXTme ...

Alcohol dependence has similar criteria to abuse but is more severe. These symptoms include increased tolerance, drinking larger amounts or for longer periods than intended, an inability to reduce or stop drinking despite negative consequences and withdrawal symptoms.Three key features of all addictions are compulsion (powerlessness over taking the first drink), obsession (persistent & dominating thoughts to drink) and loss of control (can’t stop drinking once started).Once addicted, permanent changes happen to the brain’s reward, motivation and memory circuit’s resulting in intense craving.Read the full post here: bit.ly/3IDZ3Yf ...
