About This Project
The Medicine Abuse Project is a unifying campaign that brings together families, communities, industry, health care professionals, educators, law enforcement and government officials to curb teen medicine abuse, and ultimately save lives. By working together, The Medicine Abuse Project aims to prevent half a million teens from abusing medicine within five years.
The Medicine Abuse Project launched during the week of September 23-29, 2012 with Phase I of the campaign, which began to raise awareness about the issue by asking stakeholders to take the following Pledge to help stop teen medicine abuse at MedicineAbuseProject.org:
"As a [Parent/Grandparent I Health Care Providers I Communities & Law Enforcement I Educators], I pledge to learn about teen medicine abuse, to safeguard my medicines and to talk to the teens I know about this issue.”
