Video: National Association of School Nurses Launches Educational Program to Address Surge of Prescription Drug Abuse by America's Youth
Date:4/16/2008

e for middle and high school students. Videos feature interviews with experts on drug abuse, scientists, health practitioners, parents and recovering teens. The series kicks off with "Myth Busters," a video dispelling the misinformation about prescription drugs, including the beliefs that they are less dangerous than illegal drugs and not addictive. Other topics include a look at the impact of abusing prescription pain medications on the developing brain, the social impact of addiction, and analyzing messages about drugs in popular culture. Each downloadable video is accompanied by science and language arts curricula to facilitate classroom activities and discussion. The program includes a the.Medic video and guide for parents, who play an important role in reinforcing their children's education about prescription medications.

"I think this program is a great way for teens to see and hear, firsthand, the consequences of poor choices ... choices that they don't have to make," said Hayley Norwood, a recovering teen. "Since prescription drugs are given by a doctor, I thought they were okay for me to take, even though they weren't for me. What I didn't realize was the serious consequences I faced by taking someone else's medications."

NASN will promote the program among its 14,000 members to reach teens and their parents around the country. For more information on the program and to view the videos and curricula, visit http://www.macneil-lehrer.com/thenews/themedic.

PriCara(TM), Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., provided funding for the program.
