The abuse and diversion of prescription medications is the fastest growing substance abuse problem facing our country. While powerful medications such as opiates and amphetamines can be safe and effective when taken as prescribed, these same medications can be highly addictive and even lethal when used illicitly without physician guidance or monitoring.
People Care fights prescription drug abuse by delivering innovative educational programs to the people of New Hampshire and by supporting common sense initiatives aimed at reducing opportunities for abuse. Join us in saving others from the misery of addiction and the tragedy of lives cut short by overdose. Only by working together as a community can this serious and growing problem be solved.
