Pain Meds

are the most commonly abused substances in the state.

Opiates (including prescription drugs) are the most commonly cited drugs among primary drug treatment admissions in the state, followed by heroin and marijuana.

The growing concern in New Hampshire is not deaths due to road accidents, obesity or heart disease, but teen drug abuse. It is time to think why this is happening. They think using prescription drugs for pleasure can help them get rid of the problems in life and take them miles away from the realities of life. The more dangerous thing is that they think the drugs are safe because they have been prescribed by doctors. They do not know that they are entering into a deadly journey.

The most common prescription drugs that teens get addicted to come in the category of opioids (Vicodin, Morphine, Darvocet, Lortab, and others), benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Restoril, Klonopin) and amphetamines (Adderall, Dexedrine and Ritalin).

Generally, people harbor the misconception that drug abusers cannot be brought back to their normal lives. Another wrong notion is that abusers are morally weak people who have no strength or willpower to face the challenges of life. In other words, they are dubbed failures. Such thinking makes matters worse for teens that are gripped in the clutches of addictive drugs.  

Addiction is treatable. New Hampshire has an array of treatment centers that can help you or your loved one recover from addiction. A professional counselor can guide you through the process of recovery, which includes choosing a treatment center to meet your needs.
