Description: An estimated 4 million people 12 years or older used controlled sedatives, stimulants, or opiates for non-medical reasons in 1999, with almost half of them reporting that they used prescription drugs non-medically for the first time in the previous year. NIDA’s initiative will seek to increase awareness of this disturbing trend in the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs and to promote additional research on this topic.
