Did You Know About Prescription Drug Abuse?

Did you know about prescription drug abuse addiction?

Back in the late '80s I worked in a pharmacy. I knew prescription drug addiction was real. I even saw the symptoms of it. I remember a guy coming in paying with all the change he had scraped together for his pain meds. I heard the pharmacist have to call the doctor with recommendations to cut him down/off his meds. I don't know the statistics for our current times, if prescription drug abuse is any higher or lower than those days. But I do know that there are many treatment options for those who get caught up in it.
