As a parent, caregiver and/or community member, it is important to know the dangers of prescription (and over-the-counter) medicine abuse. Since October is National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month, we thought this article from the Know! Program would be a great resource.
According to Know!, "Talking regularly with kids about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs reduces their risk of using." Know! is a program of the Drug Free Action Alliance. To receive Know! Parent Tips, sign up online at www.drugfreeactionalliance.org/know/parent-tip-sign-up.
