Thank you for your interest in the Prescription Drug Community Action Kit. More than 43,000 people die from drug overdose in the United States each year, many from opioid painkillers like hydrocodone and oxycodone, with brand names such as
Vicodin, Percocet, Oxycontin or
Opana. This kit is a first step to mobilizing your community and addressing prescription drug misuse, abuse and overdose.
This overview shows you how the Community Action Guide can be put to use in your neighborhood. It provides key strategies to fight prescription drug overdose, and identifies who should be involved, goals, action steps and ways to measure success.
