Legacy Tools for Safely Managing Prescription Drugs and Opioid Addiction
The opioid crisis has become a public health emergency with more than 110 Americans dying daily from opioid-related overdose. CSIP and the Partnership for Drug Free Kids have worked with partners and stakeholders to raise awareness about the dangers of misuse of opioids and provide additional resources that respond to the ongoing crisis of opioid addiction in the U.S. This is a nationwide problem that requires a nationwide effort. At the same time, we have worked closely with state government partners in North Carolina, Connecticut and others states promoting local responses to the crisis as well. These efforts for resourcing families and consumers in the fight against opioid and other prescription drug abuse can be viewed on our legacy resource site MedicineSafe.org.
