Addiction to prescription drugs in Nashua and throughout New Hampshire has outstripped addiction and overdose deaths to other more familiar so-called street drugs such as cocaine and heroin, according to officials. It’s this addiction to powerful narcotic pain killers like oxycodone, Percocet and fentynol that are killing more people and sending addicts in droves to doctor’s offices and emergency rooms seeking these narcotics. These addicts also are filling up beds at treatment centers like Keystone Hall in Nashua.
