Prescription Drug Education Program

Access, visibility, and promotion of prescription medications in the United States have collectively contributed to one of our nation’s most critical public health challenges: the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs.

Opioid abuse is now the number one cause of accidental deaths in the US. By students’ sophomore year in college, about half of their classmates will have been offered the opportunity to abuse a prescription drug.*

The abuse of prescription opioids and stimulants is a serious problem on college campuses. That’s why the Association for Accessible Medicines (AAM) is offering an evidence-based curriculum to help prevent abuse--and it’s free to any college in America. Created with EVERFI, a leader in digital learning and prevention education solutions, including AlcoholEdu, the curriculum equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to help make healthy choices for themselves and their classmates. This innovative digital learning course that uses an evidence-based approach to encourage safe and responsible decision-making. This engaging digital curriculum is available at no cost to incoming college freshmen through EverFi’s Campus Prevention Network of over 1,300 member colleges and universities. The course is currently being used in 20 different states across the U.S.

Bring this program to a college in your state.
