OxyContin is a brand name of oxycodone, a powerful prescription painkiller. When it was first manufactured, OxyContin was advertised to patients and medical professionals alike as a non-addictive, safe painkiller to be used for most any patient in pain. Today, the truth is evident: OxyContin is highly addictive and extremely dangerous when used in high doses, or when used in conjunction with other substances like alcohol. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, roughly 9.7 million people misuse OxyContin and other prescription pain relievers each year, with 1.4 million people developing an addiction to these substances.
