The National Safety Council observes this month as National Safety Month to bring awareness to risks we take at work, at home, and on the road.
Prescription Pain Killer Abuse
Preventable injuries are the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S. right after heart disease, cancer, and chronic lower respiratory disease. For adults age 25-64 the leading preventable injury cause of death is overdose from prescription pain medication.
70% of all prescription drug abusers get their drugs from friends and family – sharing drugs is a felony. More than 52 deaths from prescription drug abuse occur daily. Read more about how to stem the abuse of powerful and dangerous opioid prescription drugs:
