Anyone can need rehab for drug addiction
If you worry that you are the only one who’s ever had a dangerous addiction to deal with, stop feeling bad about it. You are not alone. Hollywood actor Ben Affleck freely admitted to attending rehab when he posted on Facebook about his experience at an alcohol treatment facility in Malibu in March 2017. Affleck told his social media followers that he sought treatment at the behest of his friend Charlie Sheen.
“Grey’s Anatomy” star Eric Dane was injured in a sporting accident and became so dependent on OxyContin; he checked into rehab in 2011 to deal with his addiction. “Jersey Shore” star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino spent time as an inpatient at a Utah drug rehab facility in 2012 to deal with a similar addiction to prescription pain pills. “Friends” actor Matthew Perry openly admits to attending rehab more than once for alcohol and prescription painkiller problems.
You don’t have to be a celebrity to get in trouble with drugs or drinking. More everyday Americans are addicted now than at any other time in history. The availability of strong narcotic analgesics has led to an epidemic of monumental proportion. Fortunately, confidential and compassionate help can be had at numerous drug addiction rehabs in California and across the continent.
Is addiction your fault?
Maybe not. If your trusted family physician prescribed OxyContin, Lortab, codeine, morphine, methadone or another opiate-based pain medicine, you might have innocently taken your first step toward a habit when you swallowed the first pill. While very effective at treating severe pain, these sorts of analgesic medications are very, very habit forming. The way these drugs affect the brain makes it hard to live without them after a relatively short period.
Perhaps you started using because you wanted to fit in with a particular social crowd. Maybe you took your first drink because you wanted to feel better after a sad occurrence in your life. Most people can take a sip and leave the rest of the bottle alone. The thing is, some people seem to be ‘wired’ in a way that makes them more susceptible to addiction than others.
