Frederick, Maryland (PRWEB) June 13, 2014
As reported by the Frederick News Post in the article 'Survey: Prescription Drug Use Reaches One in Four High-School Seniors in Frederick County' (6/12), a recent survey has made an alarming find about high school students in Frederick, Maryland. According to this survey, researchers have found that at least one in every four high school senior has used a prescription drug such as Adderall or Oxycontin without a valid doctor’s prescription. Local police believe that these statistics have stemmed from the ease of finding prescription medications in parents' medicine cabinets. The survey also showed an alarming rate of illegal prescription drug use among middle school students in Frederick, Maryland, with eighth graders reporting the highest rate of use. To put this issue in perspective, more than 100,000 people over 14 sought help for a prescription drug problem in Frederick, Maryland last year.
Prescription pill abuse is relevant all over the United States and not just in Maryland. However, the results of this survey have made it clear about how big the issue really is. Harbor Village reminds all that prescription pill abuse can cause harmful health effects on users and can even lead to death. Just because a medicine has been prescribed by a doctor does not mean that it should be taken irresponsibly or shared with anybody else. Many teenagers believe the misconception that prescription pill abuse is not harmful because they are not considered illegal street drugs. However, prescription pill abuse, especially painkillers, can lead to worse drug problems, such as heroin abuse.
