Prescription painkillers – Vicodin, OxyContin, Percocet, Lortab, etc. – are opioids and fall into the same class of drugs as Heroin. Unknowingly, many of us allow doctors to prescribe them for sports injuries and even wisdom teeth extractions. Most believe they are safer than illicit drugs because they are prescribed by a healthcare professional. Education is key. This video will help you learn how to keep you and your loved ones safe.
