Drug use in America has evolved, and now there is a new threat to our children: medicine—legal drugs that are sold in every pharmacy and found in every medicine cabinet. Sleeping pills, painkillers, muscle relaxers, ADHD pills, and cough medicine have become the drugs of choice. According to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, with the exception of marijuana, young people are more likely to abuse these legal drugs than any other. In Prescription for Trouble you’ll witness the true stories of the dangerous—and sometimes deadly—outcomes for teen drug abusers, and hear from their parents and friends, and experts on what to do to stop this trend. (22 min.)
