If you answered yes to more than 2 or 3 questions, your responses suggest that prescription medication use could be a real problem for you, and that your using is consistent with most definitions of prescription drug addiction.
Good on you for being so courageous, and really taking an honest look at your use of prescription medications. We know you will have heard it before, but it is true that admitting your problem, even if only to yourself, is the first and most vital step you can take toward creating the change you want in your life.
The next step happens when you talk about your problem with another person. Seeking professional help is your best chance to address the issues you face in dealing with a prescription drug addiction, and to find a new way of living without needing prescription medication.
At South Pacific Private we specialise in the integrated medical, psychiatric, and psychotherapeutic treatment of addictions such as this. The treatment program is evidence based with a comprehensive and holistic approach to addressing the underlying core issues, trauma, and family dynamics that may have fuelled the development of your prescription drug addiction.
We invite you to phone our experienced team to have a free private and confidential discussion about whether you may benefit from the programs we offer at South Pacific Private.

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be. These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
