Report: 70% Of Americans on Prescription Drugs, Mayo Clinic Reports

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) June 28, 2013 -- In an article by CBS Atlanta (6/19), the Mayo Clinic has reported that nearly 70% of Americans are taking at least one prescription drug and more than 50% are on at least two prescriptions. Twenty percent are on at least five prescription drugs.

The study is uncovering important information on how drugs are used in this country. It was found that the three most common types of prescriptions are antibiotics, antidepressants and painkiller opioids. “Often when people talk about health conditions they’re talking about chronic conditions such as heart disease or diabetes,” Dr. St. Sauver stated in a Mayo Clinic press release. “However, the second most common prescription was for antidepressants — that suggests mental health is a huge issue and is something we should focus on. And the third most common drugs were opioids, which is a bit concerning considering their addicting nature.”

Prescription drug abuse usually starts with one doctor authorized prescription and can escalate to a life threatening problem. Only a certified, 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village, is qualified to assist clients who are suffering from prescription drug issues. Anyone who is experiencing a problem with prescription drugs should check into this state-of-the-art facility.

At Harbor Village, a trained team of medical professionals helps clients achieve recovery from both alcohol and drugs addiction. Located in South Florida, each client experiences detoxification in a luxury environment featuring upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a caring, attentive staff who is with each client every step of the recovery process.

Researchers state that the use of prescription drugs will only rise in the future, which further promotes abuse of these drugs. The Mayo Clinic confirms this finding with alarming statistics. People who take at least one prescription drug per month increased from 44% in 1999-2000 to 48% in 2007-08.

“A prescription drug dependency can take over your life and adversely impact your job, family and future. Check into a detox center such as Harbor Village and get rid of this terrible addiction as soon as you can,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
