BATTLE CREEK, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- As a leading Michigan-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, A Forever Recovery reviews prescription drug abuse as one of the most troubling trends in America. The facility comments in a recent press statement, "Prescription drugs are not only easily accessible, but they are one of the most silent addictions found throughout the country. There is no demographic that is untouched by the risk associated with prescription drug abuse."
While prescription medications are designed to help those who need them, these drugs can become habit-forming unintentionally or when used recreationally by those who do not require them. A Forever Recovery offers open-ended treatment to help those suffering from substance abuse overcome these issues, but notes that if possible, it is best to take note of these addictions early on and employ necessary measures to make sure habits do not form.
Although the FDA has made many efforts to quell instances of prescription drug abuse in America, a recent article from The Huffington Post reveals that those who wish to experience the effects of these drugs will take extra steps to acquire the "high" offered by such medications. It states, "Substance users often pulverize and snort, or melt and inject, prescription opioids. To prevent these uses, drug manufacturers Purdue and Endo now produce, respectively, OxyContin and Opana with tamper-resistant features that prevent crushing and dissolving." While Endo has made efforts to prevent abuse, the patent on its Opana drug are set to soon expire, making it more possible for addicts to abuse these medications.
Despite the risk of these drugs becoming more open to abuse in the future, A Forever Recovery reviews the STOPP Act as one positive step in the right direction in addiction prevention. The article explains that the STOPP (Stop Tampering of Prescription Pills) Act can help create safer prescription drugs in the future. The Huffington Post suggests, "In essence, the STOPP Act would prohibit any old-formula opioid from entering the market if the FDA has approved a newer, abuse-deterrent version of the therapy. STOPP should become law as soon as possible. Waiting until after these less safe generic versions hit the market would needlessly put Americans at risk."
While the STOPP Act has yet to be passed, A Forever Recovery reviews this effort as one that all Americans should learn about and support to help create a more drug-free environment across the nation.
