Most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends.
Young adults (age 18 to 25) are the biggest abusers of prescription (Rx) opioid pain relievers, ADHD stimulants, and anti-anxiety drugs. In 2014, more than 1,700 young adults died from prescription drug (mainly opioid) overdoses-more than died from overdoses of any other drug, including heroin and cocaine combined--and many more needed emergency treatment.
