Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Summit

HOT SPRINGS – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today, along with the Arkansas Office of the Drug Director, Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy and the Criminal Justice Institute, a division of the University of Arkansas System, hosted the sixth annual Arkansas Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Summit at the Hot Springs Convention Center.

The Summit serves as a free training and educational opportunity for law enforcement officers, medical professionals, pharmacists and educators, and gives an opportunity to hear from experts regarding prescription drug abuse prevention and treatment, and was attended by over 1,000 – a record.

“Prescription drug misuse and abuse continues to be one of the main issues concerning all Arkansans,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “This Summit is one more important avenue for those working to solve this crisis – medical and law enforcement professionals – to educate themselves about and identify new treatment and educational opportunities. There is no one solution, but there is one mission – saving lives. I am proud of the partnerships that have once again come together for this record-setting event.    MORE
