The Dangers of Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug abuse has been a growing problem in America, where 20 percent of the population uses these drugs for non-medical reasons, a large number of them have crossed the invisible line into addiction and are not aware of it. The access to prescription drugs can start with a legitimate prescription, but can continue through numerous means; online pharmacies, doctor shopping, prescription fraud and switching to other illegal street drugs. Prescription drugs are separated into three categories: narcotic painkillers (like Vicodin or OxyContin), stimulants (like Adderall, Concerta or Ritalin), and sedatives/tranquilizers (like Valium or Xanax). None of these should be used without consent from a doctor, and the specific instructions for each need to be followed very carefully. We are here to help answer any questions you may have.
