  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • Overdose of OxyContin is serious and may require hospitalization. Occasionally, the individual needs to be temporarily hooked to a ventilator to help him breathe until the OxyContin wears off.
  • Addiction to Lortab can occur even if someone is taking the drug legitimately for pain.
  • A characteristic of heroin use is a half-conscious state known as "nodding."
  • The risk of a drug overdose is always greater when using illicit street drugs, because the user can never be sure how strong the drug is that they are taking; ultimately, this can lead to serious, or even fatal consequences.
  • Because treatment dropout is a primary concern encountered at drug rehabs, motivational techniques are sometimes used to keep individuals engaged which helps improve treatment outcomes.
