What You Should Know about Prescription Drug Abuse


Product Description

What You Should Know about Prescription Drug Abuse

  • Educate employees about prescription drug abuse—scope of problem, definition, risk, impact, who’s at risk, prevention, and treatment
  • Reduce risk to the organization
  • Encouraging self-diagnosis and seeking help
  • Reduce risk of accidental death among abusers
  • Help employees determine whether treatment is necessary for themselves or a loved one

Prescription drug abuse is nearly epidemic. Overdose deaths are up 400% since 1999 according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. One contributing cause is abusers not thinking of prescription medication as addictive or dangerous as street drugs. It can take time for them to determine they need help. Some symptoms of prescription drug abuse mimic other problems, like depression, which may leave the abuser’s physician and loved ones in the dark about their misuse. By helping employees learn more about prescription drug abuse, employers can play a role in prevention, help families, and protect the bottom line from a vast array of direct and indirect costs.
