What can parents and others do?
Watch for these signs of prescription drug abuse.(Some abusers of prescription drugs do not exhibit warning signs):
*Missing medications from family members
*Dramatic changes in appearance
*Dramatic changes in behavior
*Excessive over-the-counter medicine use
*Continued use of the prescription drug
Parents can educate themselves about drugs and drug abuse:
*Talk to their children about the dangers of prescription and other drug abuse.
*Safeguard your homes and securely store prescription and over-the-counter medications.
*Supervise their child’s activities, know who their friends are and monitor their surroundings.
*Be a role model-Do the right dose.
*Overdose and addiction are two risks of abusing prescription drugs.
*Relying on prescription medications early on, as a teenager, to manage or cope with life can set a teen up for a lifelong addiction to prescription drugs which has rapidly turned to heroin use and death.
