Facts And Details About The Top Four Most Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs in NJ:

Oxycontin — This drug is the most dangerous of the abused prescription drugs and it is also extremely easy to obtain. Users tend to take more than their bodies are physically capable of tolerating, making this drug increasingly more dangerous. Additionally, there is a very high demand for Oxycontin and it is a very expensive drug, which makes it one of the most popular drugs to sell or distribute.

Oxycodone — This prescription drug is easily obtainable, as it is prescribed or distributed for surgeries and chronic pain by the vast majority of physicians. It holds a moderate street value and is sold or distributed in bundles. The generic brand is known as Percocet.

Vicodin — Also known as Hydrocodone. This is the easiest prescription drug to sell, as it is one of the most popular among the abused prescription drugs. It is sold very cheaply and is readily available.

Xanax — This is an anxiety medication that is frequently prescribed. Although Xanax is so easily obtainable, it is still in very high demand and is frequently sold at a low cost.
