Narconon Survey Confirms Pervasive Prescription Drug Abuse by Young Americans
Date:6/6/2013

(PRWEB) June 06, 2013

According to the Partnership at Drugfree.org, there are more teens misusing and abusing prescription drugs than ever before. In April 2013, this non-profit organization published their annual Partnership Attitude Tracking Survey (PATS) that showed that one in four American teens has misused or abused a prescription drug. This figure increased 33% over the prior five years. To verify this information, the records of rehab admissions at the Narconon Arrowhead rehabilitation facility were combed to determine how many young admissions fit this pattern. An overwhelming 89% of young adults who were admitted to this rehab reported prescription drug abuse and addiction – usually years of this addictive habit.

These admissions were part of a larger tabulation of the drug abuse history of treatment admissions. Those selected out were between the ages of 18 and 22 years of age when they arrived. The lists of prescription drugs that had been abused at this tender age were astonishing. Drug abuse histories like these were all-too typical:

C was a 21-year-old male whose major addiction was to opiates. He had abused them daily for three years before arriving at Narconon Arrowhead. He'd tried cocaine but it caused him to have seizures. The list of opiates he had abused included methadone, Lortab, OxyContin, Darvocet, fentanyl, tramadol, Norco, Percocet, codeine, Subutex and Suboxone. In previous attempts to get sober, he had been given Xanax, Seroquel, Klonopin and Ativan in detox facilities. C had received tickets for 15 major driving violations and had been charged with three DUIs.

K was a 22-year-old female who had been abusing opiates for ten years when she arrived at Narconon Arrowhead. Her list included heroin, morphine, Dilaudid, Percocet, Demerol, Darvon, Darvocet, codeine, OxyContin, Subutex, Suboxone, opium, hydrocodone, tramadol, Norco and Lortab. A few days a month, she added Xanax,
