Although prescription drugs such as painkillers, anti-anxiety medicines, and stimulants offer many therapeutic benefits, they are also the gateways to addiction. In fact, the federal government calls prescription drug abuse the most damaging epidemic the country has ever faced.
Over the past ten years, the number of people who have overdosed on these drugs has tripled. Prescription drug addiction also frequently leads to illegal drug abuse.

There are hundreds of addictive prescription drugs. Physicians rely on these powerful medicines to effectively treat everything from chronic pain and sleep issues to seizures and attention disorders.
The medical community, however, is now closely examining ways to reduce the number of prescriptions issued because of how addictive and damaging these medications can be. The challenge is even more difficult because the public views prescription drugs as safe and legitimate. In fact, the majority of individuals who overdose and die from prescription drug abuse do so with medicine obtained from a family member or friend.
There is no doubting the severity of prescription drug abuse. After alcohol, prescription drugs are the second-most common cause of emergency room visits. In fact, more people die from prescription drug abuse than from vehicle accidents.
Abusing prescription painkillers can have devastating effects. Those who abuse costly prescription drugs such as Vicodin often turn to heroin because it is cheaper and stronger. Abusing a combination drug such as Vicodin or Percocet can also end in liver failure and death, especially when combined with alcohol.
