Take The Pledge

The Medicine Abuse Project
 Joseph --

Here's something you might not know: Drug overdoses now surpass car crashes as the leading cause of accidental death in the US.

And what is driving this trend? Prescription painkiller overdoses.

This uncomfortable truth is just one of the reasons why The Partnership at has chosen this moment to launch The Medicine Abuse Project. We're aiming to prevent half a million teens from abusing medicine over the next five years. I'm proud to say that our organization is asking people like you to take a stand on this life-or-death issue.

But we can't do it without you. Will you sign our pledge and help kick-start the movement to end medicine abuse?

"I, Joseph, pledge to learn about teen medicine abuse, to safeguard my medicines and to talk to teens I know about the issue."
Take the pledge

The Medicine Abuse Project will launch the week of September 23rd and continue as a multi-year national action campaign. We have teamed up with more than 60 strategic, federal, and corporate partners to break the silence on prescription drug abuse -- and we need your help, too.

You can take the first step right now: sign the pledge on The Medicine Abuse Project's website to add your voice: 

Thank you,

Steve Pasierb
President and CEO
The Partnership at
