Prescription Pill Abuse

Regardless of whether it’s a physician prescribed narcotic-sedative (emotional-pain reliever), narcotic-stimulant (distraction-reliever) or narcotic-opioid (physical & emotional pain reliever), prescription pill abuse is an iatrogenic (Greek word “iatro” = “doctor” & Greek word “genic” = “born of”), or doctor produced drug addiction.

The blame-game notion often launches emotional turmoil within the insightful prescription pill abuser in early recovery:

  • Shouldn’t my doctor have warned me?
  • Should I have done more research before filling the prescription?
  • Did my doctor know my prescription is highly addictive?
  • Should I have done more research before filling the prescription?
  • Did my doctor have any training in prescription pill addictions?
  • Should I have checked my doctor’s resume before my visit?
  • Why did my state’s medical board allow my doctor to write me potentially addictive prescription pills without any education, training or experience in prescription-addiction?
  • Why did the manufacturer of my prescription pills not make it clear how many people have become addicted to these prescription pills?
  • Why don’t government legislators change the laws regarding the writing of narcotic prescriptions?
  • Is my prescription pill abuse my fault?
  • Is my prescription pill abuse my doctor’s fault?
