The Prescription Drug Abuse Guide

Prescription drug abuse is becoming an increasingly serious public health issue in the United States.  Prescription drugs are increasingly available and abuse has reached near epidemic levels.  More people die each year from prescription overdose than car crashes and yet where is the public outcry?  For many teenagers the medicine cabinet is the easiest place for them to get high for the first time.  This isn’t hard to believe though when we consider that nearly 50% of adults report that they have used medications for other than their directed use.

Combatting the prescription drug abuse epidemic is going to require education and a combined effort from private and public health officials, but if you or loved one are suffering from addiction to prescription drugs then KLEAN has compiled some useful information about prescrption drugs in this guide.
