New Research from Ameritox Shows Prescription Painkiller Abuse Epidemic is Ever-Changing

A research report releasedtoday by AmeritoxSM showed an increase in the number of samples testing positive for a drug not prescribed by a doctor or for an illicit drug. But on a positive note, the report also revealed a modest improvement in likely adherence in patients prescribed opioid medications for chronic pain management.

The new research shines a spotlight on 10 states with the greatest number of troubling samples in each of the three categories of concern – “prescribed drug not found,” “non-prescribed drug found” and “one or more illicit drugs found.” Four states ranked in the top 10 in two categories.
