Over-the-Counter and
Prescription Drug Abuse


Imagine this scenario: you work in a store that sells over-the-counter drugs. You watch customers coming and going, making their purchases. You wonder why the middle-aged man you help on a weekly basis needs so much cough medicine. You start noticing things, like youth that come in, but never buy anything. Look closer - abuse is going on.

Your job, as an employee or retailer is to reduce access to those who misuse or abuse OTC drugs.

Review the surprising facts, afterwards you will be asked to take a short quiz.
