Modern Addiction - RX
My latest NFT is now available on SuperRare:
Prescription drug abuse has become the most dominant addiction threat of the modern era with more than 15 million Americans suffering from a prescription drug addiction at any given time.
With the rapid increase of internet pharmacies and physicians prescribing more opioid painkillers than ever, the last ten years have seen a monumental rise in this type of drug use.
Over the course of your lifetime you are likely to be prescribed more than 14,000 pills.
Today we have been led to believe by doctors, by advertisers and by the pharmaceutical industry-that there is a pill to cure just about anything that ails us. Are we on the verge of becoming a medicated society?
The “Modern Addiction” series speaks to our culture’s over-consumption of prescription drugs and our bodies’ dependency on these medications.
