According to CBS, prescription pill overdoses are on the rise. Is anyone surprised by this? Not me.

I'm not surprised by it either, especially concerning this area. I've lived in so many places, and I've never seen a place that had so many pill addicts as Kentucky. It's embarrassing. Watch the 20/20 special about southeastern Kentucky to see what I mean.

Pain clinics seem to be handing out pill prescriptions like candy. No wonder there are so many people dying. Several of the people who used to take Georgia and Chicago trips have died recently of overdoses. It doesn't really bother me though. At least they're not getting anymore tax payers' money via mental ssi checks now.

I wonder which state ranks the worst for pill overdoses. I heard that Kentucky was #2 last year. I wonder where it ranks this time around.

I'll never feel sorry for people who overdose on drugs while trying to get high.

I read online that West Virginia is #1 for prescription pill overdose deaths. I think that's why a lot of so-called pain clinics have been closed down there in the last three years.

THIS is what there needs to be shows about in eastern Kentucky, not gay mayors and moonshine makers.

According to the news the latest info shows we are making inroads to the pill pipeline. THe newest drug of choice is heroin. There have been three confirmed od of heroin and seven more thought to be related in Fayette county in the last two weeks. I say a lot of the so called pill od's are actually heroin. It is cheaper and readily available. If it isn't it will be soon.

Nope, no pity for them at all.

Just because a doctor prescribes a pain pill doesn't mean you have to take it. It is your choice to take it. The doctor is not forcing you too. I agree doctors around here are to quick to hand out pain pills but that doesn't mean they are responsible for you getting hooked or for the deaths due to ods. The only person responsible for those are the person that is taking the pills. We need more prevention programs and until we do nothing will change. Heroin is the drug of choice subsitute as it is cheap and readily available. So even if the pain clinics are shut down or the doctors crack down on prescribing pills we will still have a problem.

the drug abuse problem we have in the us is a complicated one. it is going to be hard to fix. the person that brought up the heroin is right I am from Richmond ky and our county coroner said that he saw five heroin overdoses in the last month. he said that it is going to be a bigger problem that the prescription pills. I have heard people on these topix sites say that it is here in eastern ky also. the lawmakers have really put a dent in people getting needless scripts from docs. they have unfortunately started another problem and that is that docs are afraid now to give those scripts to people who need them. I am witnessing this first hand. there are some addicts out there that really want to be clean and tired of living that lifestyle. then there are some that truly don't care about anybody but themselves. it all comes down to one thing if your an addict and you want to get off the drugs then you will have to buck up and do what it takes. sure there will be sickness and hard times with it but anything worth having is not going to be easy. that's the problem everybody wants it to be easy. some people think life is one great big party and that attitude just pisses me off.

I'm not shocked about that. In fact, not only have I heard that pill overdoses are on the rise in Kentucky, but I've heard that heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine related deaths are on the rise in Kentucky, too. It doesn't seem like the politicians care about any of that though.

I hear a lot about heroin and meth lately. It's disturbing.
