OXY: What Your Kids Aren’t Telling You

Oxycontin is a powerful prescription pain medication that you may have in your medicine cabinet.  Kids are getting their hands on this drug and it is starting them on the road to deadlier drugs like heroin.  Some children are experimenting with “oxy” as early as 12 years of age.  The addiction takes control of them quickly and follows them into adulthood.  Many never shake it.  Others die trying.

Parents have no idea their kids are hooked until it's too late!

“This stuff is out in the open.  Kids find it in your medicine cabinet, your travel bag, etc.  They crush it up, snort it and/or smoke it.

They believe is it okay because it was a prescription mom and dad were taking.  WRONG!

When I found out about this problem, I decided that KUSI NEWS would lead an effort to create a public awareness campaign about this deadly epidemic that is growing in our community.”
