It is sad to see the tragedies that happen to individuals who begin taking medication in order to help with a specific ailment but quickly find themselves having a problem with the treatment itself. Add to this the combination of painkillers and alcohol and tragedy is on its way. In Michigan, it is not too difficult to find death attributed to an overdose of pain relievers. For Michigans', it is important to note that while the painkiller addiction rate for the Great Lakes State is somewhat low compared to neighboring states like Indiana and Ohio, it is still hovering at around 5%. Drugs like OxyContin, Percocet, Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen start by being helpful but quickly turn into harm, as users begin feeling a ''need'' for pain relievers, even when they are painless. Those are the common painkillers.
What aggravates the issue is the ease with which an individual can get his hands on pain relievers. There is no organized system to see how many painkillers' someone has bought in the state of Michigan. One could go to various doctors and repeatedly get pain relievers. Addicts often say they are still in pain in order to get more pills when their illness or sore is long gone. Doctors seldom have all the tools and resources to verify the truth of such claims, and thus quickly give medication such as OxyContin© and other pain relievers without thorough verification. Painkiller users have similar habits to Cocaine addicts, although their addiction can be much more difficult to spot due to the ''legality'' of their drug. In order to combat such addictions, it is important that an individual check themselves in a Painkiller detox and rehab center.
