Billy was a good student and an even better athlete. One day, Billy was playing basketball when he suddenly fell and hurt his knee.
His mom rushed him to the hospital where they discovered that he tore his ACL.
Billy's doctor prescribed him a drug called oxycodone to help him deal with the pain.
Soon, oxycodone's heroin-like effects began to take hold and Billy became addicted. He forged doctor's prescriptions and turned to the black market to purchase more doses of the drug.
However, its euphoric sensations were only temporary and each pill left Billy wanting more. After days of abusing this dangerous drug, he was no longer the stellar athlete, student, or son that he once was.
As the symptoms of excessive oxycodone use worsened, Billy began to think that the only way he could ever feel good again was to take more. Sadly, one afternoon, alone in his room, Billy died of a oxycodone overdose.
