When it comes to addiction, whether it is to prescription painkillers, methamphetamine, heroin or any other drug, having the right kind of addiction support to help you through treatment is crucial. Every addict who has overcome their addiction is likely to have a different success story than the next, for instance some individuals can quit cold turkey (depending on the drug) and others had to use multiple forms of therapy and detox to kick their habit.
