Prescription drugs are killing more than pain. Prescription drug abuse is Oklahoma’s fastest growing drug problem and impacts our state in multiple ways. Oklahoma workers who abuse prescription drugs contribute to poor work performance, injuries, absenteeism and lack of economic productivity. Young people may view prescription drugs as a “less harmful” drug of choice, derailing healthy development and their ability to succeed. And, Oklahomans are dying as a result of unintentional prescription drug overdoses. Combating prescription drug misuse/abuse is a priority in Oklahoma. Educate yourself, and your family, about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and be part of the solution for this growing public health concern.
