Drug overdose death rates in the United States have increased five-fold since 1980. Most prescription drug overdose and deaths occur due to pain.  By 2009, drug overdose deaths outnumbered deaths due to motor vehicle crashes for the first time in the U.S. Read more on drug overdoze 
Acupuncture offers a great degree of pain relief for most of the people.  Personally, I see about 80% success for pain in my clinic in New York City. Acupuncturists have many other methods to address the pain besides acupuncture needles like: Chinese Cupping Therapy, Moxa (Heat Therapy - burning of herbs to warm up acupuncture points) and Chinese Herbs to promote circulation of Blood and Energy which causes pain according to Chinese Medicine Philosophy.

I often see many of my patients taking 3 and more drugs to manage their health. Nobody knows what happens when you take few drugs at the same time, there are definitely could be some serious side effects that adversely effect anybody's health in a long run. 

Treatments like Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Homeopathy, Yoga, Exercises, Proper Nutrition and Life Style Changes can offer drug free powerful solutions.
