As the Dallas area sees a rise in prescription drug addiction the need for prescription drug rehab in the area becomes a hot topic.
Abused prescription drugs pose an increasing threat to Texas. The most commonly diverted pharmaceuticals in the state include hydrocodone (Vicodin), alprazolam (Xanax), hydromorphone (Dilaudid), oxycodone (OxyContin), cough syrup with codeine, steroids, nasal spray (Stadol), and carisoprodol (Soma). Statistics have been reporting problems with the abuse of dextromethorphan (DXM), especially the use of Robitussin-DM, Tussin, and Coricidin Cough and Cold Tablets HBP. As more and more people in the Dallas area try on prescription drugs the need for prescription drug rehab, education and addiction treatment becomes a prevelant issue.
These substances can be purchased over the counter and, if taken in large quantities, can product hallucinogenic effects. Coricidin HBP pills are known as Triple Cs or Skittles. Prescription drugs are diverted in a variety of ways in Texas, including pharmacy diversion, "doctor shopping," and improper prescribing practices by physicians. Pharmacy diversion occurs when pharmacy employees steal products from the shelves or through prescription forgeries. Diversion through doctor shopping occurs when individuals, who may or may not have a legitimate ailment, visit numerous physicians to obtain drugs in excess of what should legitimately be prescribed. When these doctor shoppers hit the streets with the drugs for sale the problem gets bigger and bigger and the need for prescription drug rehab weighs heavy on the minds of many.
