Prescription Pain Abuse

Satisfactory Essays
Prescription pain abuse is one of the fastest growing addictions in the country. Vicodin, Percocet and OxyContin have replaced some street drugs. I think that the abuse is the patient's fault but in a way it is also the doctor’s fault.
The doctor’s are the ones to prescribe the medicine. But the patients are the ones to go in there and say something is wrong but there is actually nothing wrong with them. Some doctors do not care enough to see if what the patient was complaining about was true. Some patients will do anything to get the prescription drugs that they need. In the rest of this paper i will describe both sides the doctors and the patients.
Drug companies want to sell the medicine to make money.
They don’t care if people become addicted
