While America has recently curbed increases in alcohol & illicit drug abuse & decreased teen smoking, abuse & addiction of controlled prescription drugs -- opioids, central nervous system depressants & stimulants -- have been rising sharply. This report, the first comprehensive analysis of all aspects of controlled prescription drug abuse, represents three years of intense work. The work includes landmark national surveys of physicians & pharmacists, more than 200 interviews, 7 focus groups, a national conference on substance abuse & pain management, & a review of more than 2,000 publications. The findings presented in this report represent an extensive & unprecedented analysis of 15 national data sets.

S.', published 2005 under ISBN 9781422303092 and ISBN 1422303098.
