Prescription drugs – underlying causes of drug addiction

Prescription medications such as opioids are highly addictive, so they have a potential for abuse. Prolonged use of opioids causes the body to develop tolerance to the drugs and this prompts one to take a higher dose to achieve the same effect. This leads to opioid dependence and drug addiction.
