Prescription For Life Milestones

Leslie Rutledge

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced a successful first year of providing Prescription for Life to Arkansas students. Launched last September, Prescription for Life is a first-in-the-nation educational tool offered at no cost to all high school students in the State to help them understand the dangers of prescription drug misuse and how to prevent abuse.

“I am pleased with the success of Prescription for Life’s inaugural year,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Arkansas has the highest prescription drug use by teenagers in the nation, and after this first year of the program, we are already seeing Prescription for Life making a real difference in students’ perception of opioid use. I look forward to watching this program expand across our state to educate teens about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and misuse.”   MORE
