Prescription Drug Abuse [INFOGRAPHIC]
If you’ve lived in this country for any time at all, you’ve noticed the prevalence of prescription drugs; the advertisements, the huge cost mark-ups, and the nonchalant attitudes most people have towards them.
The harsh reality is, we don’t treat them with enough respect. Because of the lack of respect, the lenient restrictions and rules we have with them, and the ease of access most people have to them, our prescription drug abuse problem is skyrocketing. Did you know that 1 out of 20 Americans have used a prescription painkiller for a non-medical reason? Help us spread the word about prescription drug abuse dangers, the reckless doctors who are overprescribing them to pad their pockets, and the reality that these “legal” drugs are killing more people each year than illegal ones.
