Oxycontin is one of the most commonly abused prescription drugs in the United States. Prescribed as a painkiller, Oxycontin’s packaging contained a warning not to crush the drug. This was meant as an honest warning against people mixing it in their drinks to make it easier to take. However, most people were curious about the warning, so they crushed the tablets, resulting in a strong high. Because of the opiates in Oxycontin, it became very easy for those who abused this high to become physically addicted. This infographic by the Delray Recovery Center.
