The sounds of the 90's, looks of the 90's, and trends for the most part have faded away except for one. It was then that medicating children for problems such as ADD started.
"There was a big (Ritalin) explosion in their usage and probably a lot of times they were used too often it was almost trendy for a time if your child had behavioral problems to get your child put on Ritalin," said Doctor Chris Smith.
And now, it's evolved into much more.
Now children are medicated for depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and ADHD just to name a few.
"I think there are over-uses of psychiatric medications in general," said Smith.
That's causing the amount of medications on the market to continue multiplying. And that growth comes as more and more Americans and children are found abusing prescription drugs.
The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse says over 15 million Americans are abusing prescriptions. That's more than cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants, and heroin combined.
