A Win for Families: Urban Outfitters Halts Prescription Drug Paraphernalia Product Sales
Date:6/17/2013

rugfreeurbanoutfitters">Causes.com.

Given that 90 percent of addictions start in the teenage years, these products, which linked medicine and alcohol and were aimed at a high school and college-age audience, wrongfully glorified the abuse and misuse of prescription drugs.  All teenagers - regardless of who they are or where they live - are subject to the lure of drugs and alcohol. For this reason, The Partnership at Drugfree.org continues to focus its efforts on educating, motivating, supporting and empowering families with the resources they need to help protect children from drug and alcohol abuse, most specifically in conjunction with The Medicine Abuse Project, our national initiative to prevent half a million teens from abusing prescription drugs and over-the-counter cough medicine by 2017.

According to the CDC, prescription drug abuse in the United States is now at epidemic levels. More Americans die from prescription drug overdoses than from heroin and cocaine overdoses combined. And according to our recently released Partnership Attitude Tracking Study, teen prescription drug misuse and abuse is up by 33 percent since 2008.

Educating parents and our youth about the dangers of medicine abuse is an ongoing job; a job that we all as members of society must do together. Thank you for your continued efforts to support our important cause, and please join us to #endmedicineabuse by signing the Pledge today.
