It is the goal of our partnershipwith the DEA Educational Foundation to provide information and education about the dangers, misuse and abuse of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines in an effort to save our children. In 2007, 6.9 million Americans abused prescription drugs, compared with 3.8 million in 2000—an 82% in increase in just seven years. And it continues to increase. On-line and internet pharmacies add to the list of sources where young people obtain drugs.
