Cardinal Health Foundation, The Ohio State University Launch Fourth Toolkit To Help Reduce Abuse Of Prescription Drugs On College Campuses

DUBLIN, Ohio, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that full-time college students aged 18 to 22 were twice as likely as their counterparts who were not full-time college students to have used Adderall® nonmedically in the past year.[i] And The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy reports at least one study showing that 34 percent of students at a large university used a prescription stimulant drug when they felt academic stress, believing that these drugs increased reading comprehension, cognition, and memory.[ii]

Prescription drug abuse on college campuses has become reality. To help combat the epidemic, The Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy have introduced Generation Rx University, the fourth in a series of interactive toolkits designed to help reduce the abuse of prescription drugs. The Generation Rx University toolkit is designed to help college and university students, faculty and staff on campuses across the country educate others about the misconceptions, realities and dangers of prescription drug abuse among 18-to 25-year olds.

"The average age when prescription drug abuse starts is around 21," said Ken Hale, assistant dean for professional and external affairs at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy. "It's critical that our colleges and universities do more to help prevent this potentially deadly behavior, and this new toolkit is designed to help them do that."

Generation Rx University was created by college students for college students and includes discussion-based and performance-based resources intended to help deliver programs on college campuses. The collegiate-focused material includes PowerPoint presentations and scripts, facilitator notes, workbooks, handouts, and posters to help foster conversation and educate participants. The toolkit also includes a guide for creating a reality skit and encourages actors to remain in character for a question-and-answer session following a theatrical performance.
