Painkiller Abuse/Addiction In South Carolina

This state is becoming a pill mill where prescription drugs are being prescribed without any verification. A 58-count indictment was secured by the US attorney for South Carolina in the year 2002 against 7 physicians in case of illegal prescription of painkillers. The increase in illegal painkiller prescriptions was tipped off by several local pharmacists and when the government started investigation in this context, an uproar was created in the medical world. Even though there has been some decrease in the number of American teenagers who use drugs, rates of abuse due to prescription drugs is on the rise. In such cases, accessibility of painkillers has been considered the primary problem. These drugs can be found in almost every house in America and children have no problem getting their hands on them.
