Oxycontin Thieves Getting Desperate

For the last several months there have been hundreds of pharmacy robberies across the U.S.. Thieves demanding large amounts of Oxycontin have come bearing everything from threatening notes to handguns in order to obtain the heavy narcotics.

Oxycontin addiction is similar to heroin addiction in that they’re both opiates and both have extremely painful withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms from Oxycontin include; vomiting, body aches, insomnia, depression, anxiety and severe cravings.

Pain Clinics Are The New Oxycontin Dealers

While we all hear about the growing number of Oxycontin addicts, you are bound to hear about the pain clinics that are supplying this potentially lethal narcotic. Interestingly enough, pain clinics are not regulated the same way as hospitals, also many of them are privately owned. This allows for pain clinics to focus on the financial gains they will reap for doling out hundreds of prescriptions for Oxycontin. Often times patients do not even have to prove that they are sick or in substantial pain before being prescribed drugs.

Oxycontin abuse is extremely dangerous and often leads to the abuse of other, more harmful drugs like heroin. The only real way to handle an Oxycontin addiction is to enroll in a drug rehab. This is where addicts are able to learn how to live their life without resorting to drugs and/or alcohol. One rehab, in particular, Narconon Louisiana has a 76% success rate when it comes to handling addiction.

If you or anyone you know is in need of help for a substance abuse problem please call Narconon Louisiana at 866-422-4650 for more information.

Oxycontin Abuse Common In The NFL

After recent reports of Oxycontin abuse surfaced regarding the New Orleans Saints, more and more people are coming out of the wood works claiming that Oxycontin abuse is very common in the NFL. In fact, one former NFL player insists that overtime fans hear about a player checking into rehab for an alcohol problem, more times than not it is really because they are abusing Oxycontin.

So now we can add NFL stars to a growing list of professions that become addicted to Oxycontin. And at some point maybe we will realize that Oxycontin addiction does not discriminate, anyone can become an addict and anyone can be affected by the evils the drug brings along.

Reward For Oxycontin Thief

In an attempt to curb the rising number of pharmacy robberies, Purdue Pharma has donated $1,000 to crime stoppers to put toward a reward for the capture of an Oregon man suspected of robbing pharmacies for Oxycontin. Purdue Pharma, the maker of this powerful narcotic has come under a lot of heat for knowingly marketing the highly addictive drug. As the number of Oxycontin robberies increase some wonder if this gesture is too little, too late.

Because Oxycontin requires a prescription, addicts have resorted to holding up pharmacies in an attempt to obtain the drug. It is clear that the only thing that is going to handle this growing problem is rehabilitation.

Narconon Louisiana is a long-term, inpatient drug and alcohol rehab that handles Oxycontin addiction effectively. This is evident in their 76% success rate for permanent recovery.
