Men and Lortab Abuse

Men and Lortab AbuseMen and women both struggle with addition, and these struggles may stem from specific problems in their genders. For instance, while women may abuse drugs for certain reasons, men may do so for different reasons altogether. This means they each need specialized help to recover. Men who abuse Lortab, a powerful painkiller, need treatment that addresses the unique reasons they struggle with drug abuse.

Why Men Abuse Lortab

Men experience daily stress due to family life, work and financial struggles, all of which encourage drug abuse. However, men may struggle with Lortab abuse for any of the following reasons:

  • To treat injury
  • To relax
  • To induce sleep

Men tend to seek danger more than women do. As a result, men often have injuries that require medical attention, which may include a prescription painkiller like Lortab. The problem is that, once the medical condition has healed, the drug may still be present, which encourages drug abuse to get high. Also, Lortab helps users relax, which can reduce stress and/or anxiety. Men may feel a huge responsibility to maintain many aspects of the home, which can increase their stress, which encourages drug abuse to relax. This relaxing quality can also help men get some sleep. In other words, any of these issues may encourage men to abuse Lortab, but they can recover if they seek professional help.

Detox can be extremely painful and many addicts who try to go through this stage alone fail. In fact, they relapse to alleviate pain. Secondly, outpatient treatment is a continuation of treatment on a weekly basis. It allows addicts to maintain their independent lifestyle while still receiving treatment.

These programs can help place recovering addicts with jobs, housing and help them with weekly classes.
