The definitive book on the impact of prescription painkiller abuse on individuals, communities, and society by one of America's leading experts on addiction.

In recent years, the media has inundated us with coverage of the increasing abuse of prescription painkillers.

Prescription Painkillers, the third book in Hazelden's Library of Addictive Drugs series, offers current, comprehensive information on the history, social impact, pharmacology, and addiction treatment for commonly abused, highly addictive opiate prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin®, Vicodin, Percocet, and Darvocet.

Marvin D. Seppala, M.D., chief medical officer at Hazelden Foundation, provides context for understanding the current drug abuse problem by tracing their history and the varying patterns of use over time. He then offers an in-depth study of controversial issues surrounding these readily available drugs such as over-prescription by physicians and adolescent abuse. Included is a straightforward look at the leading treatment protocols based on current research.

Also available as an E-book – available to purchase from your favorite e-book retailer.
