This article about the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids gives a good look at what they’re doing to prevent kids from abusing prescription drugs. Through monitoring and awareness they’re hoping to help stem the tide of the prescription drug abuse epidemic in the country.
We get the calls every day. Parents, siblings, grandparents and friends are reaching out to our organization worried that their loved one is abusing prescription medicine.
At Partnership for Drug- Free Kids, we work to both raise awareness about and reduce prescription drug abuse. Through our national programs like the Medicine Abuse Project, we help parents talk with their kids about medicine abuse, and offer guidance on how to monitor and secure the prescription medications in their homes.
