Enter to Win $1,500 and More During NMAAM

It’s National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month

Did you know that one in 30 youth ages 12 through 17 has misused over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine for its dextromethorphan (DXM) ingredient — and one in five young adults has misused a prescription drug?

Help raise awareness of the dangers of over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine and prescription (Rx) drug misuse during National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month (NMAAM) throughout October. Take part in the Dose of Prevention Challenge, which promotes community engagement through a variety of virtual events and activities.

We need your help to continue raising awareness about the dangers of prescription (Rx)
and over-the-counter (OTC) medicine misuse now more than ever.

Share what you’re doing to make a difference in your community by participating in the Dose of Prevention Challenge by Friday, November 6. Prizes include a $1,500 cash award for the winning coalition, a full scholarship to CADCA’s 2021 National Leadership Forum and more.
