New Partnership for a Drug-Free America 20th Annual Study Shows Progress in Teens Recognizing Dangers of OTC Cough Medicine Abuse
Date:2/26/2009

is that a low percentage of teens -- just 18 percent -- report hearing about cough medicine abuse from their parents. "Parents have a very important role in helping shape their children's attitudes about drug abuse," said Suydam. "We are working with our partners to help raise awareness and encourage this parent-teen communication." Research shows that teens who learn a lot about drugs from their parents are up to half as likely to abuse drugs.

CHPA's efforts to fight teen cough medicine abuse can be found at www.StopMedicineAbuse.org. The web site provides easy access to downloadable materials for community leaders, free pamphlets for parents in both English and Spanish, resources for additional information on talking to teens about substance abuse issues, the initiative's recently launched Facebook fan page and award-winning Five Moms Campaign, and much more. "Our member companies are steadfast in their commitment to prevent teen cough medicine abuse. But, we know that our work is far from over." Suydam continued: "With the help of such partners as the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, and D.A.R.E. America, we will continue our efforts to make sure all parents are aware of this substance abuse behavior and talk with their children about it."
