'Prescription Drugs: Good Medicine - Bad Behavior;' Science Matters Program Explores the Rise in Prescription Drug Abuse Presented by the California Science Center
Date:1/30/2009

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The California Science Center's Science Matters speakers program will examine a growing trend in substance abuse with "Prescription Drugs: Good Medicine - Bad Behavior" on Saturday, February 7, 2009 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Featured panelists will provide an overview of the science behind addiction and treatment for this new trend. The program will examine the rapid rise of this addiction, questioning whether efforts to curtail the distribution of other illegal drugs are one factor driving users to more easily accessible prescription drugs. Panelists will also debate what should happen to prevent this abuse; should we create more prescription drug legislation to further restrict the drug supply, or more intense public education to decrease demand? After the discussion, which is free to the public, audience members are encouraged to visit "Target America: Opening Eyes to the Damage Drugs Cause" to see the harmful effects of drugs firsthand.

Conan Nolan, NBC4 reporter, will serve as moderator for the panel discussion in the Loker Conference room at the California Science Center.

Panelists include: Kenneth Schell, PharmD., President, California State Board of Pharmacy and Vice President of Quality Assurance and Compliance with Prescription Solution; Marsha Stanton, PhD, RN Director of Scientific Communication, Alpharma/King Pharmaceuticals; Karen Miotto, MD, Medical Director, Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Ambulatory Care Center, Substance Abuse Programs; Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the UCLA School of Medicine; and Francine Haight, R.N., Founder of RYAN'S Cause.

Program attendees will have a chance to hear the debates on this issue and to ask panelists questions at the end of the program. All those interested in attending may RSVP at 213-744-2420.
