The Partnership at Drugfree.org Comments on National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Statement of Steve Pasierb, President and CEO
Date:9/4/2013

NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mixed news from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), released today by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), found that while prescription (Rx) drug abuse among young adults has decreased from its peak in 2009, the same progress has not been made to achieve year-to year declines (from 2010-2012) in abuse of Rx medicines.

"We tend to drastically underestimate the negative health consequences that medicine abuse is having on our kids. But the truth is that right now, this dangerous behavior is causing damage to families across the country.
