This program, designed for middle and high school students, clearly describes the dangers of prescription-based opioids abuse. Opioid abuse is epidemic with thousands of overdoses and many deaths. The NIH reports that among youth aged 12 to 17, 3.0% reported past-month non-medical use of prescription medications. Four young users talk about how they first started on drugs like Oxycodone or Percocet, and then spiraled down into using heroin, morphine, fentanyl and others. ©2018 CC
