They may be clearly labeled and commercially packaged, but when they’re abused prescription drugs are just as deadly as any controlled substance found on the street. Celebrity cases garner more attention, but prescription drug abuse and overdoses affect everyday people too. When people share prescriptions and give little thought to potential interaction with their own medications, the results can be dangerous and even tragic. Counterfeit prescription drugs are also a danger because their inconsistent dosages can lead to inadvertent overdose.
Reduce the Risk of Prescription Drug Misuse
The abuse of prescription drugs is a growing concern and a serious public health and safety problem. Prescription monitoring is often used to ensure that prescriptions are being followed per a doctor’s recommendations and also to identify people who may be abusing drugs. If warranted, appropriate clinical intervention programs can be implemented to achieve the best possible outcome.
