Prescription Drug Abuse Is An Easy Trap To Fall Into

For most people, the only exposure they may have to powerful pharmaceuticals is through the prescriptions that their doctor writes for them. What may begin as a legitimate need for pain relief drugs can become abuse or an addiction without any more prodding than a failure to understand the dangers of the drug.

Some of the more common prescription drugs that are abused include:

  • Vicodin
  • OxyContin
  • Xanax
  • Prozac
  • Ritalin
  • Oxycodone
  • Hydrocodone

If you have been charged with a prescription drugs-related crime, the most important step you can take is securing the counsel of a criminal defense attorney who has the experience and skill necessary to defend your rights. We can help you if you are facing charges for:

  • Forgery of prescription
  • Unlawful use of a prescription form
  • Unlawful possession of a controlled substance
