Over 10 million Americans each year experience irresistible triggers from Opioids, over-the-counter medicines, and other prescription drug addictions. The impact it has on friends and family can tear them apart to the breaking point, according to Cindy Rae Mogil-Cooley, founder of Prescriptions Anonymous.
Swallowing A Bitter Pill, How Prescription and Over-The-Counter Drug Abuse is Ruining Lives — My Story is a moving account by the author on the prescription addiction process at different stages. After accidentally killing a young man in 1973 while driving sober at the time, Mogil-Cooley began abusing multiple mood-altering prescriptions for nearly 20 years never sharing her traumatic story to a therapist for several years until 1997 when she finally received the treatment therapy she desperately needed and began her process of recovery.
Drawing upon her experiences, Mogil-Cooley gives readers' rehabilitation facility resources; how to recognize your own drug addiction or that of a loved one and make an informed action plan for their recovery.
Speaking about the book, the author, Mogil-Cooley— an advocate and key-note speaker to healthcare professionals, the pharmaceutical industry, support groups, and state legislatures said,
«It is quite rare to find someone talking about the prescription addiction journey. My second edition book gives current statistical information that tells readers how Opioids and other mood-altering prescriptions are addicting thousands and killing others. Don't lose hope. My new book gives first-hand information based on my own experiences and that of other recovering prescription abusers.
