My Generation Rx *
My Generation Rx” includes resources designed to educate teens about the importance of using medications safely, as well as teaching teens key skills to turn down invitations to misuse and positive alternatives to cope with the demands of life. This will be done through PowerPoint presentations, role play, and games. By learning about safe opiate use and alternative options, youth will be less likely to abuse medicinal opiates preventing the transition to heroin. “My Generation Rx” is a nation-wide educational initiative to promote safe medication practices in an effort to prevent the misuse of prescription drugs. Generation Rx is offered through a partnership between the Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy. The program is based on evidence based practices and is on the New Jersey Department of Education, Curriculum Resources for Educating Children about the Dangers of Substance Abuse, list.
