Cocaine and meth use declined (finally) in 2007! However, prescription drug abuse increased dramatically, according to a new U.S. survey. From 2006 to 2007 cocaine use among young adults decreased 23% and meth use fell 30%…however, the big hit is prescription drug abuse which rose 12%!!! This information is according to a survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Another scary not is the fact that since the 1980’s prescription drug abuse has increased five-fold amongst young adults. The reason the number is so high is because people think if it’s prescribed it’s safe.
