No Fault of Your Own
Too many fall victim to the myth that a doctor’s prescription is safe and healthful no matter what it is. While your doctor should be able to monitor your use of any prescription substance to ensure that you stay safe, it’s not always a perfect enough system to stop people from developing a physical and psychological dependence upon their medication.
It’s very important to note that prescription painkiller addiction is not your fault. You didn’t choose it and it doesn’t reflect on your character, strength or moral fiber in any way. Accidental addiction can – and does – happen every day and it is far better to admit that the problem exists and ask for help than it is to try to pretend that everything is fine while your life is on the line.
