Beware!!

It is not just illegal drugs, such as cocaine or heroin, that can lead to drug abuse and addiction. Prescription medications such as painkillers, sleeping pills, and tranquilizers can cause similar problems.

In fact, next to marijuana, prescription painkillers are the most abused drugs. More people die from overdosing powerful opioid painkillers each day than from traffic accidents and gun deaths combined. Addiction to opioid painkillers can be so powerful it has become the major risk factor for heroin abuse.
