By nature, prescription drugs, including steroids, are highly concentrated substances. A physician may prescribe small, controlled doses to treat or control medical conditions. However, if taken in larger doses or without monitoring by healthcare professionals, the effects can be serious leading to addiction or even death.
Representing Medical Professionals, Student Athletes and Others
Many times, those charged with illegal possession of prescription drugs are regular folks with underlying physical or mental conditions that precipitate the use of medications such as:
Workers with chronic back and neck pain may receive an initial prescription for pain medication and later find themselves addicted. Individuals with psychiatric conditions may find themselves caught in the cycle of prescription drug abuse just to feel normal. Even healthcare professionals with easy access to medications may find that using drugs just a few times may lead to dependency.
Another drug of concern to Texas prosecutors is anabolic steroids. In our communities, steroid use is becoming increasingly prevalent in high schools as athletes feel the pressure to achieve peak performance. The dichotomy is that in working to obtain a competitive edge, the student athlete may suffer serious emotional and physical implications (roid rage), addiction or even suicidal tendencies.
