dc.description.abstractThis study of prescription drug abuse examines the epidemic and rising concern of addiction to prescription medication such as opioids like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and morphine. Key themes examine how the effects of an addiction are not only detrimental to the individual, but also their relationships. A combination of research on addiction through literature and observing documentary/narrative films was utilized. Findings present evidence about addiction and how many addictions are similar in the side effects and dependency an individual experiences. Finally, a digital video project, American Addiction, visualizes the themes through a fictional story about a young man who falls victim to prescription drug addiction.en_US
