Prevention Media Tools for Community Use
Welcome to the “Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Media Tools for Community Use” webpage. Here you will find links to tools that you can use in your community. You will find FREE downloadable postcards (CLICK HERE), a poster (CLICK HERE), and eleven PSAs (CLICK HERE) in audio and text formats that are aimed at preventing and reducing prescription (Rx) and over the counter (OTC) drug abuse in your community.
Did you know that one person dies every 19 minutes from prescription drug abuse in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)? The Georgia Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Initiative of The Council on Alcohol and Drugs, funded by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, (DBHDD) invites you to join us to turn the tide of this epidemic and use the tools above to educate others about the dangers of Rx and OTC drugs and the importance of safely storing and securely disposing of these drugs. Remember “Prescription Drug Abuse – It’s Not What the Doctor Ordered”!
