New Federal Legislation Can Help Combat Teen Cough Medicine Abuse
Date:7/11/2012

author – from different backgrounds and from all over the country with a common concern: teenagers abusing cough medicine to get high. Five Moms was created in 2007 to raise awareness among parents about the growing problem of teens abusing cough medicine to get high. The campaign seeks not only to educate and raise awareness among parents but also to spur them to action – to educate themselves, to talk with their children, to safeguard their medicines, and to spread the word to other parents.
  • CHPA member companies placed a "PARENTS: Learn About Teen Medicine Abuse – www.StopMedicine.Abuse.org" icon on the packaging of DXM-containing cough medicines.  The icon serves as a mini public service announcement for parents, making them aware of the issue of cough medicine abuse at the point-of-sale and point-of-use and directs them to StopMedicineAbuse.org where parents can access resources they need to more comfortably talk to their teen about the issue.
  • CHPA collaborates with the Partnership at Drugfree.org to provide teens with accurate information about cough medicine abuse through the Partnership's teen-oriented website, DXMstories.org.
  • Parents: Learn about teen medicine abuse. www.StopMedicineAbuse.org
