Precription Drug addiction has become a growing social concern over recent years with more widespread recreational use of prescription medications falling in the opiate and benzodiazepine classes of drugs.  Common opiate prescription addictions include drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin, Norco, Dulaudid, and Methadone.  These medications are intended to be used to relieve moderate to severe pain, but their euphoric side effects have caused them to become primary drugs of abuse in modern society.

Over the last decade, prescription drug abuse and addiction has skyrocketed in our society, and consequentially created an epidemic of people addicted to very dangerous substances.

Most people prescribed medications for legitimate medical ailments do not set out to abuse them for recreational purposes, however there is a common lack of care with taking these medications because they are prescribed legally by a doctor and couldn't possibly be dangerous like illicit drugs. However, many prescription drugs are just as addictive and dangerous as illicit drugs and far too often, people do not realize the dangers until it is too late.
