  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • Adolescents who begin consuming alcohol before 15 years old are five times more likely to develop alcohol dependence or abuse later in life than those who begin drinking at or after age 21 years.
  • Experts have reported that the current surge in drug overdose deaths in the U.S. is related to liberal dispensing of potent prescription pain and anxiety medications; these medications are reported to be highly addictive, and particularly dangerous.
  • Individuals who take high doses of methadone will typically experience a feeling of sedation, and some users can even fall into a coma or stop breathing completely.
  • Heroin exerts its effects on the brain more quickly than other opiates, which is probably why many opiate addicts prefer heroin.
  • Methadone overdoses have skyrocket in the United States, because the drug is much cheaper and some insurance plans do not cover the more expensive prescription pain medications.
