New Survey: America’s Abuse of Prescription Drugs

According to a new national survey from FindLaw.Com, one in four Americans admits that they have abused prescription drugs. The National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has classified prescription drug abuse as a national epidemic affecting millions.

Prescription drug abuse involves taking a drug for reasons other than the drug's intended usage or use of a drug by someone other than the person listed on the prescription. Officials say, use of prescription drugs by persons other than the person named on the prescription or for uses other than intended is both illegal and dangerous.
