Painkillers: Prescription Dependency

by Ida Walker

Statistics on drug use show that abuse is decreasing. That's the good news. But there's bad news as well: the abuse of prescription drugs is increasing. Among the most abused prescription medications are painkillers, something many people have in their medicine cabinets. In "Painkillers: Prescription Dependency", you will find out what pain really is--and what it isn't--as well as the history of pain. The book also provides up-to-date information about painkillers and how they are abused. Special attention is given to OxyContin, which has expanded addiction to new groups of people. Treatment methods are also covered--but the best route is never to become addicted!
