Prescription for Life
A Digital Approach to Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention
Across our state we face a prescription drug abuse epidemic, with 40 percent of Arkansas teens reporting that they have tried prescription drugs.
Attorney General Rutledge is providing a new, first-in-the-nation prescription drug abuse prevention education program to high schools across Arkansas, all at no cost to schools.
Prescription for Life is an interactive course that empowers high school students with the skills and knowledge they need to make safe and healthy decisions about prescription drugs, using an evidence-based, public health approach. Video, animations, simulations, and rich interactivity provide a personalized, highly engaging learning experience for students.
With the help of teachers, school district leaders, and home-school networks, we have the opportunity to deliver this cutting-edge program to our youth and secure the safety and wellbeing of Arkansas’s future.
Attorney General Rutledge released a video highlighting the program as just one more prevention tool in the multifaceted approach for reaching young Arkansans.
