The state of Texas’ location within the U.S. makes it an easy target for the diversion and abuse of pharmaceutical opiates. Texas borders Mexico, where many of these drugs can be sold over the counter. Law enforcement efforts have shown that many of these drugs are being smuggled into the state through Mexico. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said in 2008 that prescription painkillers that have the most significant impact on Texas include OxyContin and other products containing oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, codeine and morphine. The diversion and abuse of benzodiazepines has also impacted the state in recent years, according to the agency. The abuse of OxyContin is on the rise and most illegal prescriptions are being written in pain management clinics, according to the DEA. These are sometimes referred to as “pill mills.” The federal government’s Drug Abuse Warning System studied major U.S. hospitals and found that Houston has one of the highest rates in the country of emergency room visits linked to prescription painkiller abuse. Many cases involved patients who abused hydrocodone or oxycodone, mixing them with other drugs or alcohol.
Other common methods of diversion employed in Texas include pharmacy theft, forged prescriptions and doctor shopping, or going from one doctor to the next to secure more than one supply of a drug. Some employees pilfer these drugs, and officials say illegal distribution and sale by healthcare workers has increased in recent years. The Internet also provides an avenue for people looking to get their hands on prescription painkillers. The danger lies in the accessibility of medications that are sometimes found to be expired or counterfeit. Many of the unscrupulous sites out there don’t even require prescriptions. The issue of prescription drug diversion is made worse by the shortage of qualified medical personnel in Texas. This means the state may have to grant prescriptive authority to personnel not licensed in other states.
