Date:4/26/2013

WOONSOCKET, R.I., April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With National Drug Take Back Day scheduled for Saturday, April 27 and in light of a new national study revealing that one in four teenagers has misused or abused a prescription medication at least once, CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS) is reminding families that proper management, storage and disposal of their medication can reduce access to drugs by young people in their homes.

Earlier this week, The Partnership at Drugfree.org and MetLife Foundation released new, nationally projectable survey results confirming that one-quarter of teens in the U.S. have improperly used prescription drugs, a 33% increase over the past five years.  Full results of The Partnership Attitude Tracking Study (PATS) are available here.

Last year, The Partnership at Drugfree.org launched the Medicine Abuse Project, a multi-year initiative with the goal of preventing a half million teenagers from abusing prescription medication by the year 2017. CVS Caremark is a Gold-level sponsor of the Medicine Abuse Project.

"The statistics on teen misuse and abuse in PATS survey are startling and illustrate why we joined the Partnership at Drugfree.org last year," said Papatya Tankut, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy Affairs at CVS Caremark.  "In addition to assisting with the Partnership's efforts to educate parents, caregivers and communities about the dangers of medication abuse by young people, CVS Caremark can help patients properly manage and dispose of their medications to reduce incidences of teen misuse and abuse."
