The main drug problem in Illinois can be found in Chicago. A lot of the illegal sales of oxycodone products such as OxyContin in Illinois are made in the city of Chicago. Many people in Illinois are addicted to OxyContin and cannot quit on their own. The lack of oxycodone creates serious symptoms in an addict, and so it is not necessarily safe to quit a long term oxycodone abuse alone.
But how does oxycodone addiction start for an Illinois resident? It often starts very slowly, with someone taking OxyContin for an injury or something like that, and then it can become more serious as time goes on. And some young people will start using it as a recreational drug and so become addicted to it. In order to get more oxycodone, many people in Illinois will try to get several prescriptions by doing what is known as doctor shopping. However, this is now made a little more difficult by the drug prescription monitoring program put in by the State of Illinois to track the prescriptions made for individuals.
There is also another easy but dangerous way for an addict in Illinois to get OxyContin or other oxycodone products. This is through the Internet. The danger is that you have no control over who you are ordering it from and what you are truly getting. It has been seen in Illinois that people ordering OxyContin over the Internet through illegal distribution groups got the wrong dosage, dangerous ingredients added to the oxycodone or sometimes even just the incorrect pill altogether.
