Abstract

Drug dependence is a social problem of over the world and resistant to medical intervention by psychiatrist as well as general clinicians. In Japan, methamphetamine dependence is one of the most critical social problems, but opioid dependence is relatively rare. Pentazocine was called the non-addictive opioid at the time of development and release and there are few reports of its dependence. We experienced a medical worker with pentazocine dependence. He started to use pentazocine to reduce serious migraine and felled into dependence by changing the purpose to relaxation of stammering fear and strain towards other people. He was successfully treated by cognitive therapy.
