Attending Drug Rehab Centers in Missouri to Stop Painkiller Addiction


The news comes as calls to enact a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) to help curb the abuse of opioids have prompted state legislators to consider making it happen in the next session. In fact, Missouri is the only one state in the entire country that doesn’t have a PDMP. Even so, it’s on you to help a painkiller-addicted loved one by checking them in at professional drug rehab centers in Missouri like the Midwest Institute of Addiction (MIA).

The aforementioned study by a top drugstore benefit firm analyzed at least 36 million painkiller prescriptions issued to 6.8 million insured Americans from 2009 to 2013. Each one was found to have submitted prescriptions at least once. Missouri’s untoward prominence was due to the fact that 16.3 percent of insured residents took a painkiller against the 16.1% national average. Another 5.3 percent of Missourians continued using after 30 days, surpassing the national average of 3.9%.
