Americans Are Hooked On Prescription Meds (Infographic)

It's safe to say that we here at MindBodyGreen advocate for the avoidance of prescription drugs whenever possible. While for many people they can be a life-changing or life-saving part of medical treatment, too often doctors overprescribe and patients overindulge.

Not only does America's lackadaisical distribution of prescription drugs have the potential to damage patients, it makes pills available to a broad section of the population that doesn't need them, opening the door to abuse. Thankfully, the folks over at 12 Palms Recovery Center have put together an infographic that sheds a sliver of light on how much the prescription drug abuse epidemic affects the US population. Take a look and tell us what you think!
