Former Oklahoma State University basketball coach Sean Sutton is facing four felony counts stemming from an alleged attempt to illegally purchase prescription drugs, an arrest that led him to enter a substance abuse treatment program. Sutton’s wife Trena has spoken publicly on how this addiction to pills affected her family. No one, she says, sets out to become an addict. “Most are seeking relief from pain and suffering, and because we’ve become a society of quick fixes, we accept the most expedient cure,” Sutton said at a press conference to kick off Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness Week. “And, all too often, that comes in the form of pills that are addictive.”
Statistics from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics show just how dangerous these pills can be: in 2008, 612 Oklahomans died from drug overdoses — and 86% of those deaths were caused by prescription drugs.
According to the DEA, hydrocodone addiction, also sometimes referred to by the brand name Lortab, is the most-common form of prescription drug abuse found in Oklahoma. Methadone addiction is also a growing problem. Even if you’re a chronic pain sufferer, there are other, less-addictive medications available.

American Indians and Alaska Natives make up almost 10% of Oklahoma’s population — 266,801 people in total. Sadly, Native Americans are suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction at higher rates than Oklahomans as a whole, according to statistics from the Oklahoma Epidemiological Profile.
