Oxycontin

If you, or someone you know, is addicted to OxyContin then you have come to the right place.

OxyContin is a powerful narcotic. It is usually prescribed only for severe pain, but many people get hooked on this opiate-based prescription drug because it is highly addictive. An addiction to OxyContin is similar to heroin addiction.

OxyContin abuse is on the rise, increasing the need for rehab centers. If you are physically dependent upon on this drug, you will have withdrawal symptoms once you stop taking it; which is why it is best to find a rehab center.

The image of a common heroin addict running the inner city streets and hiding in alleyways may be going out of date. The new trend developing is a demographic of young Caucasian men and women in their twenties living in the suburbs. Frequently these middle-class suburbanite heroin users begin their drug abuse with prescription painkillers. Oftentimes people will be prescribed  narcotic pain medicine for legitimate pain management reasons, but unfortunately many become addicted to these opioid medications. 

What happens when these prescriptions run out? Just one pill of OxyContin can cost as much as $80 on the street where as a bag of heroin typically goes for about $10. Once an opiate dependency has developed this less expensive route can be rationalized to make more sense, but in buying heroin from a drug dealer, there’s really no telling exactly what’s in the bag. With heroin the chance of overdosing is greater because users can’t know the purity level of what they are buying. Furthermore, heroin users can run a high risk of developing infections from sharing needles. There is also always the danger that comes along with involving oneself in the illicit drug underground. One can find themselves owing money to, “not so nice,” people. They may put themselves in situations where they are likely to be robbed or hurt or both. Obviously, they will face the harsh legal consequences if they are caught possessing illegal substances by law enforcement.

In recent years the rise in the popularity of heroin has spawned an epidemic of addiction, but locking up drug addicts isn’t going to make the problem go away. Janina Kean is the president of a drug addiction treatment facility called High Watch Recovery Center in Kent, Connecticut, in the middle of the northeast where it can be said the epidemic is at its worst. Kean is of the opinion that, “in this country we are still not adequately treating a serious chronic disease, which is addiction.”

The disease is spreading and in reality the stereotypical concept of an inner city “junkie” living on the streets isn’t all that there is. For middle-class America, heroin addicts can be friends, neighbors or family members. Here is a prime example of the hard fact that addiction doesn’t discriminate. This illness affects all walks of life the same.

When young adults head off to college they are faced with a new found freedom from a life that has more or less been supervised by their parents thus far. Clearly college is supposed to be about furthering education and finding a career path, however, with the reigns loosened, college also becomes a school for partying, which typically involves drugs and alcohol these days.

In a 2002 to 2013 study, research revealed that roughly 20% of full-time college students ages 18 to 22 drink alcohol and use illegal drugs. Many of these young men and women begin experimenting with substances in their first year in college.

The same 2002 to 2013 study determined that, each year, 383,000 students used marijuana for their first time, amounting to an average of 1,000 students a day. Around 450,000 underage students began drinking alcohol each year. More disturbingly, the estimated number of college students who started using prescription painkillers like Oxycontin and Percocet was 251,000 students in one year.

A successful college experience most definitely involves getting to class, passing exams and discovering a passion. Along with that, young people learn how to socialize as adults. Unfortunately, in the culture today, socializing for young adults involves drinking and drugs in a big way. There’s nothing wrong with cutting loose a bit and living while we’re young, but there is a fine line between just having a good time and opening a valve that could lead to serious alcohol and substance abuse problems.
