Addictive Drugs Categories
Just because a medication has been prescribed by a doctor does not mean it is either safe of non-addictive. Prescription drug addiction occurs when a person develops a dependency on medication.
The prescription drugs that are most often abused include pain medications such as opioids, stimulants, antidepressants, antipsychotics, depressants such as antianxiety drugs and sleep medications.
Under no circumstances attempt to withdraw from these drugs without proper ongoing medical supervision.
