Prescription Drug Abuse Is an Epidemic in Allegheny County
The county health director and the former coroner for Allegheny County put it in no uncertain terms: prescription drug addiction is more than just problematic for residents of southwestern Pennsylvania. Abuse and addiction to the drugs have reached epidemic proportion.
The solution, in their eyes? For doctors to stop prescribing larger scripts in higher doses than necessary for acute pain and to keep in closer contact with patients who are taking prescription painkillers for chronic issues. Another option is for both public and private insurance companies to pay more attention and stop patients from “doctor shopping” or getting multiple prescriptions for the same drug from multiple sources.
When prescription drug abuse is allowed to run rampant, prescription drug addiction becomes a problem, which in turn can lead to overdose and dependence on other drugs, especially heroin. Because heroin is cheaper and more accessible than strictly regulated prescription drugs, it can become the drug of choice for those who began their addiction with painkillers. In the end, both addictions destroy the person struggling with addiction, their family and their community.
