Criminal Charges Involving OxyContin And Hydrocodone
It only takes one injury or surgery to begin a difficult relationship with painkillers. One serious medical event (or even an old sports injury that flares up) can lead to a problem with prescription medication, which in turn can lead to criminal charges you never could have imagined.
The truth is that addiction to OxyContin and hydrocodone is very common, even among professionals and people with good families and productive lives. Even people who write the prescriptions can become addicted to OxyContin and hydrocodone. The problem is that in drug matters, our justice system tends to emphasize punishment rather than treatment — and this is why you need an experienced defense lawyer if you or a loved one is facing felony or misdemeanor drug charges.
