Online Guide to Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Resources Offers Help to U.S. Communities and Individuals

The National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) announces a new online guide, Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention: Resources for Community Action, designed to help communities prevent prescription drug abuse. The guide organizes resources into four categories: prescription drug abuse awareness, prevention, treatment, and recovery, and provides links to information appropriate for individuals, health care professionals, and communities in need. A directory to leading advocacy/nonprofit organizations and federal agencies with current science-based resources on drug abuse and addiction also are included in the online guide.
