If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction to prescription pills, there is help available. Click here to learn more about prescription drug abuse across the United States.
There are a number of alarming statistics that show just how dangerous prescription drug abuse has become in California. For example, 1 in 4 high school seniors reported having abused prescription drugs. Nationwide, prescription pills (often painkillers like Percocet, OxyContin, or Vicodin) are the second most widely used category of illicit drugs, beaten only by marijuana. But if their increases in popularity keeps up at the pace it’s been going, soon they’ll be even more popular than pot. And they’re far more dangerous: it’s now the number one reason for emergency room visits, and also a leading cause of death.
Why are prescription drugs so deadly? It probably has to do with how people get them. These prescription pills come from doctors and pharmacies, and so people tend to assume that they’re safer than illegal drugs. But that assumption can prove deadly, especially if the user combines prescription pills with other drugs, which is quite common. The illusion of safety actually masks the deadly nature of prescription pill abuse.
