The epidemiology data suggest that overprescription of pain killers has contributed significantly:

Important differences between medical and non medical OPR.
There are also important differences between alcoholism and opioid addiction. There are many things you can't extrapolate.
I am not trying to say that recrational use does not contribute. However, it seems that overpresciption is actually driving the epidemiology of OPR addiction

I agree. The pain pills are a miracle for some, but a terrible trap for others. I have a buddy who was able to get free of them after he got his hip replaced, but he will tell anyone flat out that he was addicted to them.
