odcpBranding_01

When most people think drug abuse they think heroin, cocaine, crystal meth and so on. Seldom does prescription drug abuse enter their mind.  It should.

Prescription drug abuse has been on the rise and especially in the state of Kentucky.

One study shows that doctors were writing more prescriptions for drugs such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, Zanax, Vicodin and more. 5 counties in Kentucky saw an average of 4 prescriptions per resident for controlled substances in 2007.

Recently, the Kentucky legislature passed House Bill 1 which sets up a database which will monitor prescription drug sales in hopes of stopping both doctor shopping and pill mills.

Van Ingram, Executive Director for the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, joins us to talk about House Bill 1 and the growing prescription drub abuse problem.
