Heroin is bad because it usually takes a needle to do it and it has recieved a bad rap over the years.

Pills are a medication that is prescribed to most people who need them. The problem is that over the last 15 years, over prescribing and illegal prescription dealing has been out of control.

It's the new heroin!!!!!!!!!

Things you can do.

keep your medications locked up and accounted for.
If you know someone who has a problem, GET THEM SOME HELP! Narcotics Anonmous can help and will.

Anyone can become dependant on narcotic especially after being treated with them. Get help if need and get help to anyone you can. it will only help your area and help the risk of criminal activity.

You are totally right. The mayor had a good point, "lock up your pills and keep them accounted for". But like you said, they are breaking into homes to steal stuff to get money to buy pills, even if you dont have pills in your home, but it doesnt look like anything will ever bedone about the situation.

The ones that get hurt here are the old folks with Arthritis and ??? that won't be able to get their medications because the government will come up with some law that tells doctors to stop prescribing and Narcotics.

It's coming.....

I think drug addicts should have to take a medication that takes the narcotic effects away from anything they ingest into their body.

There are studies on a Naloxone preparation (slow release) that will stay in your body for about 30 days at a time and detour people from abusing the narcotics.

This will be the drug of the future for addicts!!!

Something has to be done.

Things you can do..

If you suspect that a family member is on narcotics, talk to them and educate them on the risks.
Just because someone takes narcotics, does not make them a bad person. Lots of people get addicted to narcotic preparations after being on them for a period of time.
If you have a need for the medication and your doctor prescribes them to you, then you are ok.

Loaning, selling,stealing and taking more of your meds than needed are wrong and you should seek counciling.

Did you know:

Doctors,Nurses,PA's,and Pharmacist's are some of the highest drug addict professions ?

anesthesiologist's are the highest abusers!!FACT..

Hey, it is very sad. I am on ADHD medication and have been for years. Everytime I go back home I don't tell some of my old friends for they come by or call my moms wanting my medication. I always say no or I only brought what I needed and they beg and offer me money?! I never gave anyone my meds before and I will not start now. I don’t care I will tell them to get lost but I know one person how even asks my mother for her pain medication. This is my MOTHER! She obviously needs this how could someone dare ask her for it! That makes me very angry! Mom is a kind woman (to kind at times) I was lucky to be home that day for I told them “You leave and never come back or I will call the law!” Unbelievable!

Yes, you can keep meds locked up and accounted for, but you can't get help for someone who doesn't want it...that's a joke! It's apparent that you have never dealt with an addict.

ya'll are some mean people, you name names as if you know they are really messed up and have no clue, someone who is slandering melanie has no idea what she is going through you would look awful too after losing a baby and going through a divorce all in the same month. I talk to her and she is not strung out yeah she made mistakes in the past but has got herself together and is a good little mommy. Everyone just wont leave her alone.

She ask for it. Teaching sunday school and speaking to teens and she was cheating and drinking. Things like that cause a divorce. And for people to talk.

Since my last post mysteriously disappeared let me write it down again...Truth be known Roger was cheating on her with their next door neighbors daughter every since she had their baby, that is the reason they split... But the cornerstonians and the Lilly family make sure to keep that one "hush hush" and make it all look like she is the one that did all this bad stuff when he actually taught Sunday school right with her. I know they both started drinking when they quit teaching Sunday School and basically got out of church..he hit on her even went to jail over it once. I do agree with you on the cheating and drinking crap how that can cause divorce and for people to talk, but to spread it all over the internet i mean thats just uncalled for especially when they both are probably going through a hard time trying to start all over again without each other. they been together forever it seems. Oh well, i just know them both and they were really good people and still are at times...Im just saying it takes two to make a marriage work and them two musta gave up, I just think its Sad...I married and would hate to go through divorce and hate to see people I know go through especially when kids are involved...but neither one of them deserves to lose a child nobody asks for that.
