-- A comprehensive micro site http://www.dxmstories.com/ to intervene when

teens are actively searching for pro-cough and cold medicine abuse

information on the Web

-- Support of Senator Joseph Biden's Dextromethorphan Abuse Reduction Act

to curb the alarming rise in medicine abuse, including teens' misuse of

cough and cold medicines containing DXM; support of congressional

legislation drafted by Congressman Fred Upton and Congressman Rick

Larsen to crack down on the bulk sale of unfinished DXM via the DXM

Distribution Act of 2007.

Parental Involvement is Key Factor in Safeguarding Teens

The NSDUH data should serve as a reminder to parents and caregivers that all teenagers -- regardless of who they are or where they live -- are subject to the lure of legal drugs, illegal drugs and alcohol. For this reason, the Partnership continues to focus its efforts on motivating, supporting and empowering parents with the resources and tools they need to help protect their children from drug abuse.

"The Partnership is poised to help parents understand the complexities of this new tier of substance abuse," Pasierb said. "We want to help them take action to protect their families with these three words: Educate, communicate and safeguard. Educate yourself about the medications kids are abusing. Communicate with your kids and dispel the notion -- for yourself as well as for your kids -- that these medicines can be safely abused. And safeguard your medications by learning which ones can be abused, limit access to them and keep track of the quantities you have in your home. Make sure your friends do the same."
