Prescription drugs are among the most rapidly increasing forms of drug
addiction. In part, this is because they are relatively easy to obtain
compared to illegal substances such as cocaine and heroin. Additionally,
some individuals who eventually end up in drug rehab for prescription
pills began abusing them out of the mistaken belief that they were harmless
because they were prescribed by a doctor.
In fact, prescription drugs can be incredibly harmful when abused, as you’ll
see in this video. It features an interview with a doctor who warns about
the dangers of drug abuse. You’ll also hear about a documentary
that highlights the stories of two individuals who abused prescription
drugs and are now in addiction recovery.
