Is your life controlled by your painkillers?
Thousands of people in the UK, millions of people worldwide, are dependent on their prescription or over-the-counter opioid painkillers.
- We are the first, and only, UK charity dedicated to bringing together the pain and addiction communities to help fight addiction to prescribed medication.
- We believe that addiction is a chronic, relapsing condition, and should be treated as a health issue. No blame. No shame. Just help and support for people who find themselves in the grip of dependency, and their loved ones.
- We know that opioid medications may be so powerful they take away our ability to choose how much and how often.
If this is you or a member of your family, or if you’re a healthcare professional dealing with opioid dependent patients, then we can help.
