It appears to me this is mostly an advertisement for a rehab center.
BUT, several years ago I read essentially the same garbage. The DEA had on their website that women aged 35-45 would hoard Vicodin so they could commit suicide. I said it was garbage then and I do now. If we wanted to commit suicide we could find other ways besides Vicodin.

IF women are committing suicide, it's because our pain is uncontrolled. Women cannot just "go to any doctor" as this article suggests, and get pain meds. That is an ignorant statement itself.

These kinds of stories just help to keep the people behind the DEA so they can keep on with their "War On Drugs" without getting too much flak for the amount of money they spend "keeping us safe." When did it become okay for the DEA to practice medicine and decide what we need to take. Last I heard it was illegal to impersonate a doctor.

Think of all the money that could be saved if we all weren't too stupid to take our meds like we should./sarcasm

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
