The Prescription Drug Safety Program - Digital Course for Indiana Teens
About The Partnership
The Office of the Indiana Attorney General joined the Prescription Drug Safety Network, to bring an innovative prescription drug abuse prevention course, developed by EVERFI, to designated high schools in Indiana. The course is free to schools through sponsorships provided by the Indiana Office of the Attorney General, Walmart, and North Central Health Services (a non-profit hospital and grant-making organization).
About The Course
The digital learning course uses an evidence-based, public health approach to empower high school students with the skills and knowledge they need to make safe and healthy decisions about prescription drugs. Through interactive scenarios and self-guided activities, students learn the facts about drugs, how to properly use and dispose of them, and how to step in when faced with a situation involving misuse. The course is aligned with the Centers for Disease Control’s National Health Education Standards and state academic standards.

Partnership Announcement - 2018
“By educating students about the dangers of prescription drugs, we can prevent tragedies and promote smart choices,” Attorney General Hill said. “Sadly, almost half of all teens incorrectly believe that prescription drugs are always safer than illegal street drugs. We need to correct these misconceptions and empower teens to be part of the solution to the drug crisis devastating so many lives.”
