America has seen a sharp rise in the number of drugs prescribed to people, as much as 400%, with anti-depressants leading the way. Sadly, this has also seen a rise in deaths related to prescription drug overdose, particularly painkillers. While men have seen a 200% rise in painkiller-related overdose, women have gone up an alarming 400%. The reasons for these overdose deaths are simple; people take too much of a drug when they become addicted, and they need to increase their dosage to create the same feeling they had the first time.
This “plateau” effect is common to all drugs, and it simply means that as a body adjusts to the presence of a drug in the system, it develops a tolerance to that drug, becoming more resistant to its effects. In order to overcome this, some users will simply take more and more of a drug to achieve the same effect they once experienced far more easily in much smaller amounts.
Soma is one drug where this occurs, and because of the unique nature of this particular drug, Soma addiction treatment centers are here to help people that become addicted.
