CHPA's Five Moms Campaign to Stop Medicine Abuse Welcomes New Mom Tammy Walsh
Date:12/15/2011

e Moms campaign I hope to help start the conversation between parents and teens about the risks of substance abuse in communities across the country. I am thrilled to join the Five Moms campaign in the fight against teen cough medicine abuse and look forward to continuing to spread awareness of this important issue."

Since its launch, the Five Moms campaign has reached more than 35 million parents and has resulted in 130,000 tell-a-friend electronic communications sent from parents to other parents to raise awareness of the issue of cough medicine abuse.

The Five Moms campaign features five dedicated mothers from a variety of backgrounds and geographic locations. The moms at the heart of the Five Moms campaign are:

  • Becky Dyer, a former D.A.R.E. officer and deputy sheriff;
  • Blaise Brooks, a mother, caretaker and accountant;
  • Christy Crandell, a mother, author and founder of a treatment and recovery center for teens;
  • Misty Fetko, a nurse and mother whose son lost his life while high on DXM; and
  • Tammy Walsh, a mother, educator and community advocate.

"The Consumer Healthcare Products Association and its partners have a long-standing commitment to raise awareness of the issue and urge parents to take action to prevent cough medicine abuse among teens," said CHPA President and CEO Scott M. Melville. "The Five Moms campaign is inspiring and effective because five mothers are reaching out to mothers and fathers across the country speaking from their personal experience fighting abuse in their home and community."

In 2009, CHPA introduced an educational icon on the packaging of cough medicines containing DXM to alert parents to the potential for abuse, and launched StopMedicineAbuse.org to engage parents and community leaders
