Oxycodone Addiction in Teens

Oxycodone is the generic name of a prescription painkiller called OxyContin. OxyContin was first manufactured 20 years ago and is an extended release opioid when taken orally. However, OxyContin used to deliver its full rush all at once when injected until Purdue Pharma, the manufacturer of OxyContin, developed an abuse-resistant form of the pill.
