There is no better example of opiate addiction than some of the popular athletes of today. Brett Favre tops the list as the most well known a celebrity to have an addiction to the pain medication vicodin. I can say with certainly how easy it is for many to get addicted to such medications simply because of how easy it is to get a quick buzz off of them.
If you have an addictive personality already, it would not shock me in the least if any of these prescription meds found their way into your daily routine. Athletes get them with ease due to the amount of nagging injuries they have. Especially football players who take a beating on a weekly basis and most likely have many long-term chronic pain afflictions.
The main benefit for professional athletes who have the money is that when they finally decide they are addicted they have many choices for rehab, while a many of us would have a long painful road to kicking the habit. Many people say it is harder to quit these drugs than many of the harder drugs that people get addicted to, and I can understand why. That is why finding a rapid opiate detox system would be incredibly helpful for anyone that really wants to quit.
