Ever present in the minds of Phoenix residents is the need for prescription drug rehab programs.
Prescription drug addiction is prevelant in Phoenix and effective drug education and rehabilitation will help individuals in Phoenix. The prescription drugs of choice are hydrocodone (Vicodin), benzodiazepine (Valium, Xanax), oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan), steroids, and codeine.
OxyContin being one of the most prevelant abused prescription drugs used in Phoenix, is a controlled released medication with the active ingredient oxycodone. The common side effects of Oxycontin abuse include constipation, nausea, sedation, dizziness, vomiting, head ache, dry mouth, sweating, and weakness.
This type of drug addiction is spreading throughout the area because of the availablity of the drug as well as the different ways to get a hold of these drugs. Typically these prescription drugs are diverted through a variety of techniques including "doctor shopping," pharmacy diversion, prescription forgery, smuggling from Mexico, and purchasing over the Internet, particularly from foreign sources such as Mexico.
