Ways to Help with Lortab Addiction

“The… patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his own life. Don’t take your body to the doctor as if he were a repair shop.” — Quentin Regestein

When I was younger I had this idea that there was a better life through chemistry.  ETOH, Benzos, barbuituates, amphetamines…  As I matured as an adult I began to think that the doctor was there as a repairman!   These two principles lead many people down the road to addiction.  When it comes to pain management the pharmaceutical route typically seems to be the best answer.  Quite frankly, Pain Sucks!

Lortab is an Opiate medication that is prescribed by doctors to treat pain.  Obviously with all Opiates they have the potential to become addictive.  So what are the ways to help with Lortab addiction?  Frankly, as with all pain medications there is not an easy answer.  However, this is can be overcome if you want relief.  I am often asked when it comes to prescription medication addiction or reliance, “am I an addict, I have never had any problems with any kinds of addiction.  I do not drink alcoholically, nor do I take medications that I have not been prescribed”?

Truthfully, although this is reality for some folks, it is typically not the case for most.  For most individuals they may begin by getting a legitimate prescription.  But, they move quickly from pain management to enjoying the “High”.  People that would never in their own mind frequent a shooting gallery for heroin are now utilizing these opiates via prescription.  Often juggling prescriptions from two or more doctors so that they can stay high.

Is the protocol for Lortab addiction the same as heroin abuse, cocaine abuse or alcoholism?  It depends on the variables involved.  As with any addiction it is extremely important to gather all of the information and develop a game plan for your recovery.

Go, Go, Go…
