There are so many people suffering from dependency to pills and medications today.

There is a program of recovery that utilizes the 12 Steps to maintain abstinence and members offer wisdom and hope to other pill addicts working together to stay clean and helping others find the same freedom.
Pills Anonymous (P.A.) is a fellowship of recovering pill addicts throughout the world. This is a program of abstinence from pills and all other mind altering substances. Their members are able to maintain sobriety through sharing their experiences, their strengths and their hopes with each other. They do this by working the Twelve Steps of Pills Anonymous and following the Twelve Traditions of Pills Anonymous.
The Twelve Traditions of Pills Anonymous
P.A. is a program of abstinence from medications and pills that have become an addiction. They maintain and affirm that their definition of 'sobriety' is abstinence from all mind altering substance which includes alcohol. The only thing required of their members is that they have the 'desire to stop using pills', nothing else. If you have the desire to stop using pills members will eagerly support you because they totally understand what pill addiction is like. They know what it takes to help them maintain abstinence and they support other members of their group to help them achieve their freedom also.
Many members of Pills Anonymous became addicted to medications that were prescribed for them. They say they have given up their right to seek a 'sense of ease and comfort' from mind altering substances including but not limited to pain killers, sedatives, and certain over the counter medications.
Some people aren't sure if they're actually addicted to pills sp Pills Anonymous has the P.A. 20 Questions that are designed to help you determine if you are a pill addict. When answering these questions, be as honest as you can because pill addiction is not only serious but only gets worse, not better.
If you or someone you know is addicted to pills, see if P.A. meetings are in your area.
