Prescription pill addicts hide in plain sight


Donna says the public perception of a drug addict is someone like Paul (not their real names), a biker who literally grew up on the streets of Toronto with scars from knives and bullets to prove it.

She said the growing number of addicts on P.E.I. are harder to spot, except by former addicts like herself.

They're professionals, "functioning" and addicted to prescriptions drugs they've either obtained legally or illegally.

Donna said she was addicted to prescription drugs for a year and a half.

After a major surgery, she was prescribed 1 mg of Dilaudid a day for her pain.
