This paper examines the increased abuse of prescription medications, concentrating on the popular chronic pain medication Oxycontin; this is the most infamous of the severe pain relief prescription medications and by far the best known. The paper explains the differences between abuse and dependence and discusses how the legitimate uses of prescription pain relief medication and their valuable therapeutic effects also make the regulation of them extremely difficult. The paper contrasts the alarming increase in prescription medication abuse with the equally disturbing, but not as rapidly increasing rise in "traditional" drugs abuse.
