Infographic: Pain Pills Detox

This infographic makes the argument that millions of Americans are in urgent need of detox due to their abuse of pain pills. It cites statistics from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration that over 50 million US adults have used prescription drugs non-medically and painkillers were by far the most abused of these prescription drugs. It also states how opioid painkillers are responsible for almost 3/4 of all prescription drug overdose deaths in the US according to the Centers for Disease Control, highlighting the dangers of pain pill abuse. In addition it graphically illustrates the various means by which abusers obtain these drugs, most often from a friend or relative.
