Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with prescription painkiller overdoses reaching epidemic proportions. Much of the dialogue surrounding the issue focuses on the misuse and abuse of the medications by patients and on the addiction that can result.
