Decline in Prescription Drug Misuse More than Twice as High in States with Broad Drug Abuse Prevention Programs, New Quest Diagnostics Health Trends Study Finds
Date:7/16/2014

MADISON, N.J., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Five states that have implemented multi-faceted prescription drug abuse prevention programs in recent years showed the highest rate of decline in prescription drug misuse rates nationwide, according to a new study issued today by Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX), the world's leading provider of diagnostic information services. The findings suggest that broad, collaborative measures that include prescription drug databases and physician and patient education may be effective at curbing the nation's epidemic of prescription drug abuse.

Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Tennessee showed the highest rates of decline in misuse rates over the last three years, according to the study of more than 1.4 million drug test results between 2011 and 2013. The average decline for these states was 10.7%, nearly 2.5 times higher than the average decline of 4.4% for all other states combined, in the 46-state study.

The Quest Diagnostics Health Trends™ study also found that 55% of Americans potentially put their health at risk by misusing their medications in 2013, a decrease of 8 percentage points compared to misuse rates of 63% in 2011.

The study's findings support previous research that suggests broad drug abuse approaches may be effective. A July 2014 study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted a 23% decrease in drug overdose deaths in Florida between 2010 and 2012, with similar improvements in '/>"/>
