Unhooked Show: Episode - Prescription Pills

Abuse of prescription pills is growing and none of the addicts look alike. They vary from teens that find drugs in their parents’ medicine cabinets to those who are post surgery and still rely on drugs to manage the pain long after the physical pain has ended to those taking prescription pills for another ailment not prescribed by one’s personal physician.

In her own words, Evie shares how her addiction to pills began with migraine headaches. She went from pills to alcohol to out-of-control. Guest Expert: Dr. John Buchholz
