Nearly 4 out of 5 unintentional poisoning deaths in Oklahoma are a result of prescription drug abuse. Prescription drug abuse is Oklahoma’s fastest growing drug abuse issue. To combat this epidemic Oklahoma created the Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success. DCCCA is the grant recipient for the prevention of non-medical use of prescription medicine in people ages 12-25 in Oklahoma County. They are asking for help in collecting data to help with their prevention efforts.
This is an anonymous survey collecting data on how people 18 and older are currently using, storing, and disposing of their prescription medicine. This data will help DCCCA and the community coalition on choosing appropriate strategies to help combat prescription drug abuse. There is an opportunity to win a $250 Visa gift card and if you live in Oklahoma County they are giving away 10 gift cards. If you would like to help, complete the survey. The survey will be open until Oct. 22.
