NoRxAbuse

Our mission is to improve patient safety and to prevent prescription drug abuse by providing tools to healthcare professionals, by increasing public awareness and by developing viable solutions for local communities.

Prescription drug abuse in the U.S. is increasing exponentially, particularly among teens and young adults. Prescription opioids are the fastest growing cause of death among Americans.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention designated prescription drug abuse a national epidemic. While some may believe that increased regulation will solve this problem, history of various regulatory failures appears to indicate otherwise.

The motto of our group is: “Education is more powerful than regulation.”

Thank you,
