Most of the time, the addict wants to stop Oxycontin. They want to until they skip a dose of Oxycontin. Then the feeling starts creeping in, where they feel a strong need.

Their mind will be unable to focus on anything, and they will suffer many other ''withdrawal'' symptoms that are similar to what is felt by heroin addicts when they skip an injection.

Oxycodone has seen a small rise in Alabama, especially through the brand oxycodone. Since it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1995, with intense marketing starting in 1996, a lot more people have been taking this prescription drug. Most people actually need it to alleviate the pain, but the danger is in the addictive nature of this drug.

Some people will start off needing it and then eventually start abusing it; they have to have it, and it has nothing to do with the pain. For example, in Mobile, Alabama, there was a woman who had to take oxycodone for a back injury. However, eventually it developed into something more, and she forged 10 prescriptions to get access to more oxycodone. She came in possession of 732 pills illegally between April and July 2009. She was sometimes caught and arrested. This is how oxycodone can affect a person’s life, and that happens even in Alabama.

There have also been a few busts and that illustrates how imminent the danger is. For example, in January 2010, there was a bust involving 500 pills of oxycodone, some other drugs, and guns. This was one of the largest ever seen in Madison County, Alabama. In Mobile, Alabama, there was a dealer caught with $14 000 worth of oxycodone in his truck. This is all to show that even though Alabama doesn’t an oxycodone problem of epidemic proportions, the problem is nonetheless, present.

It should also be noted that from 1999 to 2002, there were 42 deaths due to oxycodone overdose in Alabama. Although it is not too many deaths compared to other states, those are deaths that could have been avoided with oxycodone detox programs and rehab treatments.
