Prescription Drugs constitute a high percentage of substance addicts in the state of Mississippi. According to data released by National Substance Abuse Index (NSAI), in 2005 there were 10,065 persons undergoing continuous treatment in the rehabs. 31.6 % of women abused illegal substances as well as pharmaceutical drugs for non-medical purposes. The situation is acute in the metropolitan cities. 95 % of drug related deaths in the state in recent years were due to over consumption of Sedatives, Tranquilizers, and Painkillers. This tendency is high among high school students (12 to 17 years) and the youth, mainly 21 to 35 year olds. Oxycontin, Xanax, Percocet, Ritalin, and Valium are regular pharmaceutical pills and are easily available. Since these drugs do not show quick external addiction symptoms, these are more damaging to the body and mind. Visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, Compulsive Obsessive disorders and other forms of Psychosis are observed.
