When narcotic pain relief creates the chains of addiction.

If you have become dependent on narcotics such as Vicodin – also known generically as hydrocodone – you know how such an addiction controls every aspect of your life. Most likely, much of your energy is spent trying to come up with ways to get enough Vicodin to keep you feeling “okay.” As doctors become concerned, you simply try to find new doctors – often called “doctor shopping” – who will write you a prescription for Vicodin or other narcotic pain killers. The goal of this site is to help you face your addiction and take the first steps toward freedom from pain medication dependency.

The Pain of Addiction

Vicodin addiction often starts innocently enough. Most people start taking Vicodin or other pain medications after surgery or an injury. But then they can’t stop. They need more to get the same pain relief. They start doctor shopping to get more pills. And the cycle continues until it takes over their lives.
