    Teen OxyContin Use
    Teenagers are especially susceptible to OxyContin abuse because the drug is often readily available in one’s own home or the homes of friends. It is common for abuse to begin by taking pills that were legitimately prescribed to someone the user knows. Teens sometimes incorrectly assume that because a doctor prescribed the drug to one person that it is safe for another to consume. This leads to high numbers of teens abusing prescription painkillers like Oxycontin. Here are some numbers regarding adolescent use of prescription opioids according to American Society of Addiction Medicine:
    -Each day, 2,500 adolescents abuse prescription opioids for the first time
    -1 in 30 high school seniors have abused OxyContin
