NCAPDA is passionate about educating students about the dangers of prescription drug abuse. We believe that by building awareness about pain killers, anti-anxiety, and stimulant-oriented medications, we can positively impact youth who are losing their lives or becoming addicted due to these drugs each year.
School campuses provide vital venues for education about the dangers of prescription drug abuse, which has become a problem from as early as middle school through college. Although it is not the case today, curriculums in every school, college, and university should include prescription drug education.
Following are suggested ways to engage schools in building awareness programs on their campuses.
NCAPDA resources are available for consultation for building a program that will work best on individual campuses throughout the educational spectrum.
