What happens is that people start taking them and then their bodies get so used to them that they start to need more. That's how an addiction gets started. That's what is attributing to these statistics.

As reported by The Daily Beast in the article “Prescription Drugs More Deadly Than Car Accidents, Guns, and Suicide” (5/25), the National Institute of Drug Abuse has found many recent, disturbing facts about prescription drug use in the United States. The statistics in the article show that prescription pain killers account for 75% of deaths around the world, 52 million people over the age of 12 have used prescription drugs for purposes other than medication, and that half of the pills that are taken were not even prescribed by a doctor, instead people got them from friends or family members. The article goes on to acknowledge the rising illegal use of prescription drugs in the celebrity industry and how that tends to make it glamorous.

“There is no doubt that American is currently suffering from a prescription pill abuse problem,” said the head of Harbor Village, a high-end detox center located in sunny Southern Florida. “Over the past year, we have treated people for various addictions that stemmed out of prescription pill abuse—Xanax, Oxycodone, Vicodin, Percocet, and more. What happens is that people start taking them and then their bodies get so used to them that they start to need more. That's how an addiction gets started. That's what is attributing to these statistics.”
