Do you know someone with a prescription drug abuse problem?

Statewide, the statistics are staggering. Prescription drug abuse is advancing at alarming rates throughout our population. From law enforcement to educators, from grassroots community efforts to statewide organizations, concerned citizens of Georgia are striving to address the multiple facets of this damaging and costly situation. Prescription drug abusers are not limited to street addicts. Abuse crosses demographic lines and affects all ages. Drugs are easily attained through a physician. Often, medications are prescribed for legitimate reasons but are later diverted to abusers. Drugs are frequently stolen from parents, grandparents, friends or co-workers.
