Teen prescription (Rx) drug abuse is a serious and growing problem
in the United States. According to a survey, one in four high school
students has taken a prescription drug that was not prescribed for
them by a doctor. Every day, 2,500 young people use a prescription

mixing prescription medications with alcohol can cause serious health
consequences—even death. It’s important that parents be aware of
this issue and monitor teens’ access to prescription drugs.
