Prescription drugs are just as addictive as the ones on the street—sometimes more so. There’s no way to tell when someone will end up being addicted to their prescriptions and the more available the drugs, the more that people will abuse them. They can take them for the same reasons that they take illegal drugs. Maybe because of trauma or because they’re predisposed to abuse.

Some people see prescription meds as safe and justified. They feel like a prescription makes it okay for them to take as much as they want, and they don’t realize just how easy it is to get addicted. Some people get the prescriptions because they already have a problem. I guess it’s just a mix between convenience and availability.
