Powerful painkillers and antidepressants are easy to access. Many people who suffer chronic pain or mental health issues have been prescribed these drugs. People from all backgrounds – professionals, athletes, students, parents – use these drugs as prescribed but then experience both physical and psychological addiction. Sometimes, children or young adults experiment with medication prescribed to others. Drug mills are actively providing drugs to their networks. In some cases, people are unaware of the potency of the drugs they are being given by people they consider to be trusted friends. Traffickers often travel to other states and sell these drugs.
