Prescription Drug & Over-the-Counter Drug Abuse Facts


By 
Chris Newcomb, M.Div.

Millions of Americans take some sort of prescription pill and/or over-the-counter medication at some point in their lives. Prescription pill abuse and over-the-counter medication abuse rates are skyrocketing.  People are unaware of how powerful these drugs can be and how easily they can be abused and lead into a full-blown addiction.  What's even more disturbing is that rates are rising rapidly for the number of young adults who are abusing prescription pills!

At The Coleman Institute, we want to help inform and educate the general public about the dangers of prescription drug abuse as well as abuse of over-the-counter medicines. If you need to be on a certain medication, please be sure to explain any family history or pre-disposition to addiction to your doctor BEFORE he writes you a prescription.  He or she can be an added layer of protection for your from the potential to get addicted.

Please take a moment and click on the link under the graphic below and read this article on prescription drug abuse facts to educate yourself and then feel free to pass it on to anyone you know who could benefit from reading it.
