Prescription Drug Abuse: America's New Greatest Drug Problem

 Registration for this event is now closed.
One in 5 teens abuse prescription drugs! Is your teen one of them? Register for this free program to learn about America's new greatest drug problem.

- What motivates teens to engage in prescription drug abuse?  Ultimately their desire for getting high outweighs their perception of the risks.                                                           

- 12 to 17 year olds abuse prescription drugs more than they abuse ecstasy, crack/cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine combined.                                     

- Sixty percent of teens who abuse prescription pain killers did so before age 15.            

- There are as many new abusers (age 12 to 17) of prescription drugs as there are of marijuana.                                                                                                                                         

- Every day 2,500 teenages use a prescription drug to get high for the first time.

Speaker: William J. Lynch, Jr., Clinical Pharmacist, Kennedy University Hospital, UMDNJ-SOM
