The prescription opioid problem has reached epic proportions in the U.S. In 2013, 50.5% of people who misused prescription painkiller drugs received these drugs from a friend or relative for free. Furthermore, over 22% of people who abused opioid painkillers received them from their own doctor, making this issue a bit of a hidden epidemic that impacts all people.
