Prescription Drug Use and Addiction

I just reviewed a very disturbing study about prescription drug use and addiction*.

5 Important Facts:

  • Every day 2500 children between ages 12-17 abuse prescription drugs for the first time.
  • Prescription drug abuse is more common than most other drugs COMBINED.
  • The U.S. has over 22,000 deaths from prescription overdose each year.
  • Prescription abuse is increasing in upper income households.
  • Over 60% of the underage abusers got drugs from their parents medicine chest!

The majority of the drugs abused were prescribed for pain. Many painful conditions can be treated in a Holistic way. Cranial Sacral Therapy has a direct effect on the nerves that carry pain signals to the brain. Balancing the nervous system allows the body to relax and heal, minimizing the need for pain relievers.

I have personally known several people that started taking prescription pain medication for a legitimate reason only to become addicted to it in a very short time!

Investigate this healthier and longer-lasting solution for pain. To learn more about Cranial Sacral Therapy click here.
