Program Overview

The abuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs has taken root among America’s teens and the behavior is not registering with parents. When these medications are abused, or used for anything other than their intended purpose under a doctor’s supervision, they can be every bit as dangerous as illegal street drugs. The focus of this program will be to discuss what we must do to fight this problem.
