Prescription Drug Overdose is On The Rise

PEOPLE STAT BACKGROUNDAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly three out of four prescription drug overdoses involved prescription painkillers—also called opioid pain relievers. In fact, these drugs were involved in 14,800 overdose deaths in 2008, more than cocaine and heroin combined.

This is a challenge that hits some parts of America disproportionately. In a period of nine months, for instance, a tiny Kentucky county with a population of less than 12,000, saw nine people die from pain medication overdose.

Novus Detox is a Florida Drug Detox Center that provides a safe and painless drug detox program for people who are suffering from substance abuse.
