So, it turns out that young people are abusing the prescription drug Adderall to help themselves manage the workload in school. I had no idea! The dangers are real, as the infographic below will show you. One of the scariest parts for me as a mom is the fact that abusing prescription drugs isn’t necessarily viewed as a bad thing by younger people.
Please, talk to your children about the dangers of abusing prescription drugs. This is a problem just as big and difficult as the illegal drug problem. I like the quote at the bottom of the graphic, which states that “A 4.0 just isn’t worth a drug habit.”
