Event description

Description

Misuse of prescription drugs means taking a medication in a manner or dose other than
prescribed; taking someone else’s prescription, even if for a legitimate medical complaint
such as pain; or taking a medication to feel euphoria (i.e., to get high)

  • Opioids—usually prescribed to treat pain

  • Central nervous system [CNS] depressants (this category includes tranquilizers, sedatives,and hypnotics)—used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders

  • Stimulants—most often prescribed to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ALL members of the community are invited to attend and speak at this
PUBLIC FORUM that will highlight the concerns of the public.
Specifically, CSW would like to hear testimony on personal experiences with
the misuse of prescription drugs.
