This documentary is a look into the addiction cycle of a few of the people i grew up with. Pharmaceutical drugs such as OxyContin were reaching a new popularity as i was progressing through high school and into college. Vicodin had always been a fairly popular drug with my peers, but with the ever increasing potency and introduction of time-release opiates, my friends and peers became addicts rather than recreational users. I escaped the grasp of these drugs because i had left to college to pursue baseball. When i had come back to my city that i knew and loved, i noticed a torrential change. My friends were stealing from family and friends, robbing banks, robbing pharmacies, going to jail, and dying. I acknowledge that drug users whining and blaming the drugs get addicts nowhere. It it not my goal to give a voice to those who are to incompetent to rise up and solve their own problems. I would simply like to display the path that pharmaceutical drugs will eventually take you down. The new age of pharmaceutical drugs potentially targets anyone. We all have rough times in life and physical injuries we sustain. The thoughts in our head often head toward immediate alleviation of our problems. Split decision can be the distinction between and addict and a working professional. Doctors prescribe these addictive drugs for petty injuries. The easy access, fast paced world, and human error all can lead to addiction. I aim to warn of these traps and display the path of downfall from such substances.
