“The prescription medication addiction problem in the U.S. is having some unexpected consequences,” notes the DrugRehab.com website. “In many cases, experts report that when an individual has been addicted to pills for a while, they often start replacing these drugs with harder, more dangerous street narcotics like cocaine or heroin.” 1
