When Painkillers Become Dangerous
A Recovery Book
People, it seems, have a history of self-medicating for pain.
The high profile and increasingly widespread cases of prescription pain medication abuse that we’re seeing today serve as the latest chapter in America’s long-standing love/hate relationship with painkilling drugs.
In this fascinating, informative, and timely book, Dr. Drew Pinsky and other leading experts in the fields of addiction and recovery discuss;
why people are using drugs such as OxyContin and Vicodin,
how people used and abused other painkillers in the past,
what makes some people vulnerable to addiction, and
how to get help for yourself or a family member in trouble with drugs.
