CIGNA and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids are kicking off a monthly series of telephone seminars that will help you better understand today’s changing landscape of substance abuse. The seminars are free and there is no registration required. They’re open to any parent, caregiver or loved one interested in learning more about teen drug addiction. Each seminar will include the participation of a leading expert within the field and a parent from the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids’s Parent Advisory Board, who will share his or her personal experience with the topic being presented.
Did you know that one in five teens has used a prescription drug not prescribed to them by a doctor?* This month’s podcast and Q&A will explore teen abuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs and what parents can do to prevent this dangerous behavior.
Steve Pasierb, MEd, President and CEO of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids
Phil Bauer, father and Parent Advisory Board Member of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. Phil lost his youngest son, Mark, to prescription drug abuse in 2004 and is committed to raising awareness about the risks of these actions.
