Investigation: Are You a Veteran on Pain Killers Prescribed by the VA?Center for Investigative Reporting

According to data obtained by The Center for Investigative Reporting, prescriptions for four opiates – hydrocodone, oxycodone, methadone and morphine – have surged by 270 percent in the past 12 years.
