GMA Health story on prescription drug abuse

Well, again, I tried to embed the video, but it didn't work. So I'll do the next best thing and provide the link:

Interestingly, I saw this video after reading an article -- published in the UK -- on a recent dramatic increase in antidepresant prescriptions. Click here to read it.

Granted, this is somewhat of a different issue, painkillers and antidepressants being two different things. But, personally, I think it's fair to say that a similar risk exists, especially with climbing rates of use.

Note: Please be aware that these articles/videos are referenced for their relevance to issues with which GCASA is concerned, and that GCASA does not necessarily endorse everything cotained in them. GCASA also does not endorse the advertisments that accompany these articles/videos.
