Efforts in Trying to Reduce Teen Prescription Drug Abuse

Prescription drugs continue to be the drug of choice for many teens seeking to experience dangerous highs off anything their medicine cabinet seem to offer.

The office of National Drug Policy is now considering the abuse of prescription drugs the fastest growing drug problem in the nation considering the alarming nationwide statistics which have become epidemic.

In order to properly dispose off the excess prescribed medication in medicine cabinets, Bucks and Montgomery counties in the state of Pennsylvania have decided to participate in a prescription drug "take-back” program which has been established to collect and dispose of the public’s left over prescription pills, in order to prevent their abuse.

Melanie Swanson, a prevention specialist with the Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania, hoped that this year’s “take back” program would just as successful as last years; hoping the program would help put an end to the abuse of dangerously accessible prescription pills in the community.
