Drug abuse doesn’t exclusively involve illegal narcotics. Millions of Americans are using prescription drugs for non-medical reasons, and 40 Americans die every day from prescription drug overdoses. How bad is the problem? This video explains.
In this video, you’ll hear how prescription drug abuse is running rampant through all segments of American society. Some users find themselves coping with addiction after being prescribed painkillers to aid in recovery from an injury or surgery. Other users begin abusing prescription drugs recreationally. No matter the entry point, prescription drug abuse is a very real and dangerous problem.
