A 2011 research brief found that;
• One of the reasons that people turn to prescription drugs is because of false perception of drug safety, if there was more knowledge on this maybe this would mean less people ending up in private drug rehab and spending a fortune on this. 
• A large majority of the people abusing prescription medications got the substances from family and relatives therefore many people are ending up in private drug rehabs because of their loved ones.
• It was found that the drugs which were most commonly abused were:  Vicodin (8% of survey respondents), tranquilizers (5%), Adderall (about 7%),  and cough medicine (5%). It was also found that people were using OxyContin (4.9%) and Ritalin (3%) for non-medical purposes.
 
It should be noted that perscription drugs should be given out with precaution.
 
If you are worried about a loved one then you may need to consider a private drug rehab to help them with their addiction and get them through a hard time.
