Prescriptions Anonymous

Cindy Mogil founded Prescription Anonymous, Inc. (RxA) in September 1998 and she continues to facilitate and sponsor groups today. Cindy started Prescription Anonymous after receiving treatment for prescription addiction. After her recovery she discovered there wasn't a prescription addiction support group in Georgia and very few offered in the United States. Through the invitation of a nationally recognized treatment facility she started her program for others to come and learn from each other about a very misunderstood disease.

She created this web site on prescription addiction for people who need support, share their stories and find help. She is currently writing a book entitled "Swallowing A Bitter Pill" to offer understanding and guidance to those who need to know that there are others with this disease that can identify with their confusion, including answering many questions such as "where do I go from here?" A book she desperately needed to read while going through treatment herself. A book every family should read to help not only their loved one but also themselves. This is a family disease that touches everyone.
