Vicodin is a compound drug containing both hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Some people become addicted to opioid painkillers like Vicodin. Others can take the drug as prescribed and not have any issues. Certain factors increase the likelihood of developing a Vicodin addiction.\r\nYou Have Another Substance Addiction\r\nIf you have another addiction, like alcohol or cocaine, you\u2019re at a higher risk for a prescription painkiller addiction to a drug like Vicodin. \r\nYou Have a Family History of Alcohol or Drug Abuse\r\nStatistics show that addiction tends to run in families. One study reported that genetics influence the risk of alcohol or drug abuse by 50% or more.\r\nYou\u2019ve Experienced Childhood Trauma\r\nIf you\u2019re prescribed painkillers like Vicodin and have experienced childhood events like physical or sexual abuse, or lost a parent at a young age, you\u2019re at a higher risk for a Vicodin addiction. \r\n\r\nPeople who have gone through traumatic events often relive traumas. This is called post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In many cases, individuals with PTSD repeatedly take drugs to numb the distress that accompanies reliving trauma, opening the door to Vicodin addiction.\r\nYou Have a Mental Health Disorder\r\nMental illness is often seen with drug abuse, a condition called dual diagnosis. When a person takes Vicodin for pain relief, the drug may also help relieve mental health symptoms like anxiety or depression. When an individual keeps taking painkillers to relieve mental illness symptoms, an addiction can result.\r\nHow to Tell If You Have a Vicodin Addiction\r\nThe warning signs of Vicodin addiction include:\r\n\r\n \tBecoming physically ill when you have no Vicodin or stop taking it: muscle and joint aches and pains, excessive sweating, anxiety, agitation and sleeplessness\r\n \tTaking more Vicodin to gain the same previous effects\r\n \tAnxious about having enough of the drug for the next dose\r\n \t"Doctor shopping" to obtain multiple prescriptions\r\n \tFamily and friends express concern about your drug use\r\n \tKeeping your Vicodin use a secret, feelings of guilt or shame over your drug use\r\n \tHiding Vicodin or having a ready supply in different places to always have the drug at hand\r\n\r\nIf you or a loved one are experiencing any of these warning signs, there is professional help for Vicodin addiction at Beaches Recovery, a licensed opiate addiction treatment center located in scenic Jacksonville FL.\r\nVicodin Addiction Treatment at Beaches Recovery\r\nInpatient or outpatient opiate abuse treatment programs will help you or a loved one toward the journey of recovery.
