How Money Is a Factor in OxyContin Use
OxyContin use is affected by and affects finances. The cost of prescription OxyContin can be higher than the price of street or Internet-vended OxyContin which means that some people may accept the legal and health risks of purchasing OxyContin illegally. Others who have access to and are able to afford prescription OxyContin will still find that using this drug has costs. People who develop an addiction to the drug may resort to asking for money from friends and family, stealing from loved ones or resorting to burglary or pharmacy fraud. Drug addiction compromises addicts and reorders their priorities, and money becomes nothing more than a way to get more OxyContin. As abuse and addiction increases over time so does the cost of OxyContin abuse. The more OxyContin that is needed to get high, the more it costs.
The Risks Associated with Online and Street OxyContin
Buying OxyContin online may be financially cheaper and personally convenient, but it is also dangerous. Online drug vendors are often unreachable in the event of a problem or questions, drugs can be held at customs if they are coming from a different country and the product be counterfeit. Counterfeit drugs are drugs with inaccurate dose measurement, alternative ingredients, additives that are threatening to personal health or inactive ingredients. Those who are tempted by low prices and easy OxyContin access should consider why these drugs are so cheap.
