Presentation Description

Prescription drugs – the leading cause of death --- Most prescription drugs needs a prescription or an authorization from a doctor so you can buy them at the pharmacy. In 2005, 4.4 million teenagers aged from 12 to 17 confessed that they were abusing prescription painkillers. Around 2.3 million took a prescribed stimulant like Ritalin. Almost 2.2 million teenagers abused OTC (over-the-counter) drugs like cough syrup. The average age of use was 13-to-14 years old, making it one of the leading causes of death due to drug overdose, overtaking street drugs like amphetamine, heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine. It’s not too late to stop the abuse! The Substance Abuse Care Treatment wants to put an end to the cruel cycle of addiction and to provide an opportunity for addicts to change their lives for the better. We offer programs for all types of addiction, and treatment also provides help for those who suffer from additional mental or emotional problems as well.
