New Jersey parents and teenager are the focus of a new initiative designed to raise awareness about the dangers of prescription drug abuse, and its prevention.
The program known as The Right Prescription for New Jersey will feature web based resources to be promoted by PTA’s throughout the state. It will let parents know about web sites designed to educate and inform. The campaign will also include a series of television public service announcements as well as bus, and train ads. U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman says prescription drug abuse is not just a law enforcement problem.
“There is a very significant part of the fight that involves a comprehensive campaign of public education, to let the public, and particularly parents and teenagers know about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.”
Fishman says everyday over twenty five hundred teenagers in New Jersey get high for the first time on prescription drugs.
