Teen Teen Drug Abuse: Sleep, Anxiety Meds 12 Times More Likely To Be Abused By Those With Prescriptions:







"Prescription and over-the-counter medications are a significant problem for teens. Twelve- to 17-year-olds abuse prescription drugs more than ecstasy, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines combined — they're the most commonly abused drugs after marijuana. "



Times are changing, and so are the ways teens get high.  Prescription pills are being abused at unprecedented rates. Teens that are prescribed drugs by doctors are 12 times more likely to abuse prescription medicines than their prescription-free counterparts.
