Podcast: Teen Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medicine Abuse
Did you know that one in five teens has used a prescription drug not prescribed to them by a doctor?* September’s podcast, presented by CIGNA and The Partnership at Drugfree.org, explored teen abuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs and what parents can do to prevent this dangerous behavior.
Guests included Steve Pasierb, MEd, President and CEO of The Partnership at Drugfree.org, and Phil Bauer, father and Parent Advisory Board Member of the organization. Phil lost his youngest son, Mark, to prescription drug abuse in 2004 and is committed to raising awareness about the risks of these actions.
