Statement From the Consumer Healthcare Products Association on the SAMHSA Findings on Cough Medicine Abuse
Date:1/9/2008

WASHINGTON, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- Following is a statement by Linda A. Suydam, D.P.A., president of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), regarding today's release of the U.S. Health and Human Services Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Association's National Survey on Drug Use and Health survey, which reported data on the prevalence of over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine abuse among 12- to 25-year-olds in 2006:

And we've worked with lawmakers to advance legislation to prohibit the sale of the raw form of the active ingredient in cough medicines, dextromethorphan, to minors. But our job is far from over.

"CHPA and the makers of over-the-counter cough medicines remain dedicated to building on the successes of our multi-year educational campaign and are looking forward to the new programming 2008 will bring with our partners, including the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, the Parent Teacher Association, the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, D.A.R.E. America, and the online Five Moms campaign.

"Our goal is to make sure parents are awar
