According to thehoffmanfirm.net, the tragic part of this situation is that an addiction to prescription drugs usually starts with a genuine illness or injury, one that requires the medicine in question, and escalates into an addiction. Sometimes someone with an addictive personality – for example, someone who has issues with streets drugs or alcohol, or is addiction-prone – leads them to find a new way to get “high” or experiment with new things.
Prescription narcotics that are commonly abused include; OxyContin, Oxycodone, Vicodn, Demerol, Fentanyl, Percocet, Tylenol III, and more. Most of these drugs are recognizable and are prescribed to patients suffering from chronic pain or after an injury, and a dependence on these drugs can quickly become an addiction. Sometimes people are unaware that they need higher and higher dosages to gain the same “high,” which leads them to visit different doctors for treatment without disclosing what other prescriptions they may be using. Others who may be suspected of prescription drug offenses could include those employed in healthcare settings or with family members who take prescription drugs for chronic conditions.
