TIPS TO HELP

IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Every day, thousands of individuals use prescription drugs to get high for the first time. Many of these drugs are as dangerous as heroin and are far easier to access. They are taken from cupboards, drawers and unwatched medicine cabinets right in your home. These users could be your son, daughter, friend or grandchild. It even could be happening right now.
While the prescription drug abuse occurs in every age group, the problem is more prevalent among teens and young people. Why has this problem become so acute?
