Addiction to prescription drugs, such as pain relievers, is one of the leading drugs abused in Alabama, after Marijuana. Alabama is on a par with the national average when it comes to addiction to prescription drugs. SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) estimated, in 2007, that 35 000 adolescents in Alabama were using prescription medication for non-medical reasons. 193 000 Alabamans aged 18 or older were thought to be abusing prescription drugs. This is a state-wide problem. In 2010, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, recorded that Alabama had one of the highest rates of prescription drugs sold per person in the country. Prescription drugs are the leading cause of drug-related deaths in the United States, according to the CDC. These are terrifying statistics. It is time to reverse the trend. It is time to get control back from addiction to prescription medications.
