Parents, Physicians Unite and Declare: State of Emergency
Date:2/10/2011

BRADENTON, Fla., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 'We are in a State of Emergency at the hands of prescription drugs.'  That is the message that concerned Florida residents are desperate for people to hear. Floridians are dying at a rate of at least 7 per day due to prescription drug abuse and statistics show it is a national problem, which is why Families Against Addictive Drug Abuse (FAADA) is calling for an immediate Congressional hearing to help put an end to the epidemic.

"If 7 manatee washed up dead each day in our state, residents, government, and media would be demanding answers. Yet, prescription drug abuse takes at least 7 human lives daily and it goes relatively unnoticed. That is an atrocity," said Bradenton based interventional pain physician, Lora Brown, MD of Coastal Orthopedics & Pain Management. Dr. Brown has been working tirelessly to help put an end to the crisis.

She and other Florida physicians support implementing a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) in Florida. Dr. Brown has been an integral part in getting Prescription Drug Monitoring Legislation passed in the state. PDMP systems already exist in 80-percent of the country with a proven record for curbing doctor shopping and wholesale distribution of controlled substances, yet more needs to be done.

  • Deaths from prescription drug overdoses have become the second leading cause of accidental deaths nationwide and the leading cause in 15 states.

  • The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that 1.87 million people in the U.S. are dependent on or abusing prescription opioids.

  • Every day in the U.S., an average of 2,000 teens (not under physician care) use prescription drugs for the first time.
