As an increasing number of teens are using prescription and over-the-counter medications to get high, many parents don’t know enough about the problem and what they can do to identify signs of drug abuse. In addition, many teens don’t understand the dangers that result from using prescription and over-the-counter medications to get high.
This presentation will help parents and caregivers:
- Understand the prevalence and dangers of prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse among teenagers
- Identify the current medications teens are abusing to get high
- Identify resources they can use to help keep teens drug free
This presentation is a supplement to "Prescription for Disaster," a full-color guide that helps parents understand and identify the current medications teens are abusing. The "Prescription for Disaster" booklet is available for download in English and in Spanish.
