Prescription drugs are becoming more and more the source of drug addiction. The ease of getting prescription drugs is the reason for the rise. Addicts most likely will get their Dr to prescribe their first dose of prescription drugs and after that sometimes “doctor jump” or “ER jump”. Dr’s readily give out prescription drugs without taking the time to find out if the person needs them. It’s easier to write the prescription (and cheaper) than to try and figure out what is wrong.
Many times the Dr is paid by the pharmaceutical company to prescribe certain medications. This makes it even harder to combat since Dr’s themselves are not taking the responsibility to make sure that is what the patient actually needs.
