The Medicine Abuse Project will both encourage and help parents and the public-at-large to take action: first, by talking with the kids in their lives about the dangers of abusing prescription and over-the-counter medicines, and second, by safeguarding and properly disposing of unused medications. The launch week will culminate with the DEA-facilitated National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on September 29th, where consumers can safely dispose of their unused medications at sites around the country operated by local law-enforcement partners.

Teen medicine abuse is a growing and devastating problem, affecting one in six teens in the United States.[1] The behavior begins in adolescence, with more than 2,000 teens using a prescription drug to get high for the first time each day.[2] Today, as a result of these high levels of prescription drug abuse, drug overdoses have surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of accidental death in the United States.[3] If the human toll was not enough, all of this is an enormous drain on the nation's economy, with the health care costs related to this behavior estimated at more than $72 billion annually.[4]

"Since announcing the initiative this spring, 'The Medicine Abuse Project' has united diverse and committed partners, families and communities across the country, to help prevent half a million teens from abusing medicine within the next five years," said Steve Pasierb, President and CEO of The Partnership at Drugfree.org. "The Project is intended to bring urgency and action to address this critical health crisis, while also giving voice to those families who have been so terribly affected. We can and will have a lasting impact if we all work together to end medicine abuse."
