Prescription drug abuse is a growing issue, and opioid abuse is now the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S. Now, more than ever, students are coming to campus already taking medications that have been prescribed for conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, or for pain. It's critical to equip students with the right tools to prevent misuse and abuse.

Prescription Drug Safety is an innovative digital course that arms students with the knowledge and skills to make healthy, informed decisions when it comes to prescription medications using an evidence-based, population-level approach to prevention.
