More than 1,000 oxycodone pills with a reported street value of more than $32,000 were found in the car of a man who was pulled over for following someone too closely on the highway in Findlay, Ohio. Possession of these strictly regulated pills in such large amounts is a felony offense, and if convicted, the arrestee could face up to 20 years in prison.
Dependence on prescription drugs can be deadly. Too often people believe the myth that because the pills come from a doctor they are safe to use in any way. In fact, the opposite is true; a doctor carefully prescribes medications and monitors the patient to ensure that there are no negative interactions or complications that arise and yet still, addiction can develop. It stands to reason that the average person experimenting with these drugs would have a significantly increased chance of developing a dependency without these precautions in place.

Early Intervention Saves Lives
Why is early treatment so often recommended? There are a number of reasons:
- Every day spent in addiction could result in overdose or deadly accident.
- The sooner someone learns how to implement positive coping skills, the more likely it is that they will be able to use them without relapse in the long term.
- In the same way, the less time spent turning to drugs and alcohol, the easier it will be to envision a life without addiction and learn new habits.
