Just because it came from a doctor, doesn't mean it's not a substance that can be abused. Just because your name is on the bottle doesn't mean you can't still abuse the drug inside. Just because it's not illegal doesn't mean it's safer than drugs.
"Anyone can recover from addiction, just like anyone can become addicted."
Recovery is possible, but getting off drugs isn't something you can do alone. Seek help and recover in a way that will let you leave addiction behind for good.
"Addiction can occur anywhere, in any demographic."
Addiction doesn't care what race, gender or tax bracket you fall into. It can happen to anyone. Your age, your education, your job, they don't play a factor in who becomes addicted and who does not. People struggling with addiction come from all walks of life.
"It's common to be addicted to more than one substance."
Drugs of choice may not be limited to just one for many. Many times users find different effects when mixing different drugs together or combining them with alcohol. Recovery is still possible, but may take longer.
"Untreated addiction can lead to death."
You may think it will never happen to you, but it can and will. The human body wasn't meant to be enslaved by drugs. It thrives when it's not. And so will you. Getting help will keep you alive. "In 2013, drug overdose was the leading cause of injury death in the United States," Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data reports.
Don't be a statistic.
