If you suffer from chronic pain or another adverse health condition, you may be thankful for prescription drugs. Wisconsin doctors and others throughout the nation often prescribe narcotics to help alleviate pain or other medications to treat numerous types of ailments that might otherwise impede a person's ability to function or enjoy life.

No one is immune from possible addiction when taking such drugs and those who tend have addictive personalities may be more at risk than others are. Misusing prescription drugs can lead to substance abuse as well as serious legal problems.
