(WTNH) - It's time to make Smart Moves, Smart Choices.
Teen prescription drug abuse is a growing concern. One in five high school students has taken a prescription medication that was not prescribed for them by a doctor, and more teens abuse prescription drugs than illegal drugs except marijuana.
In 2008, 4.7 million teens reported that they had abused a prescription drug at some time in their lives.
Since 2009, addiction expert Dr. Drew Pinsky has partnered with Smart Moves, Smart Choices to educate the public about the dangers of teen prescription drug abuse.
