WHAT: As we strive to tackle the prescription drug epidemic, the link between prescription drugs and heroin is becoming clearer. These are two problems that cannot be solved independently. The Rx2H webinar will examine this link and offer solutions that can be used to confront this disturbing trend.
Prescription drug abuse among teens is an epidemic in Arizona with 1 in 5 high school seniors abusing Rx medication. DrugFreeAZKids.org is the leading source of information about preventing youth substance abuse providing families with valuable tools to raise healthy, drug-free kids. One key way of prevention is to talk early and often about the dangers of substance abuse with your children. Kids can begin to hear messages about making healthy choices as early as preschool. This is especially important since the average age of first time drug use in Arizona is 13 years old. By participating in this webinar, we will help you prepare for such discussions.
