Preventing Prescription Drug Misuse (PDM)
About the Project
The California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) under the leadership of Director Zito has identified prescription drug misuse as a priority prevention area in California. The Department convened a task force to examine this problem and develop recommendations to increase awareness, limit access and reduce the inappropriate use of prescription drugs. One result of the recommendations was the development of this Web site to provide a resource for information and evidence-based policies, programs and practices to effectively reduce prescription drug misuse among Californians of all ages and ethnic categories.
