Teenagers often don’t realize that the chemicals in Rx and over-the-counter drugs are just as potent and addictive as illicit drugs like cocaine and heroin. Program takes a close look at the do’s and don’ts of prescription and OTC medicines, informing viewers of their potential risks including abuse, addiction, overdose and death.
