Book Description
Oxycontin, a potent painkiller containing opium-derived oxycodone as its key active ingredient, was first sold in 1996 as a treatment for cancer patients and other chronic pain sufferers. From the start, the drug's manufacturer aggressively marketed its patented time-release formula as a breakthrough in the effort to reduce prescription drug abuse. It wasn't long, however, before thrill-seeking teenagers shattered that illusion of safety: by simply crushing an Oxy, they were able to tap into a high so seductive it would come to dominate their lives. some patients, seeking relief from pain, also found themselves drawn to the drug's dark side.
