What are the symptoms of drug abuse?

After a surgery, my wife started using pain pills to ease some of the aching that she was experiencing. She has now been on the pills for a few months and doesn’t seem to be experiencing any pain, yet she is still using the pills. Is there a chance she could be addicted to them?

Opiates that are prescribed to relieve pain after a surgery or injury can be highly addictive. Talk to your wife to see if she would be willing to stop using the pills for a few hours to see how she feels. If she feels the urge to take the prescription after a few hours, but doesn’t notice any pain, her body has become addicted to the pills.
