Canadian, OK (PRWEB) May 23, 2014

Narconon Arrowhead will publish a tool kit of information on its main website during the month of May, making its prescription drug abuse tools widely available to all those seeking information as to the facts and dangers of highly addictive prescription drugs, as well prescription drug recovery and its treatment.

National Safety Month

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has designated the month of June as National Safety Month, sponsored by the National Safety Council.
Injuries have been identified as a leading cause of disability, as well as a leading cause of death for American between the ages of 1 and 44. It is also known that many injuries could be prevented with the implementation of safe practices.

During National Safety Month especially, people are encouraged to share their strategies for safe practices and reduced risk of injury with others.

Safety Issues

Specific safety issues cited this month as being important to address include:

  •     Prescription drug abuse
  •     Driving while distracted
  •     Falls, trips and slips
  •     Safe practices in the summer heat
  •     Remaining aware of one’s environment

Prescription drug abuse is the intentional use of the medication without having a prescription for it. It also includes using the prescription drug in a way other than as prescribed, or for the purpose of getting high or experiencing its euphoric effects.

It is worthy of note that the issue of prescription drug abuse heads the list, and is categorized as a safety issue which demands raised awareness and a broad sharing of information as to the steps people can take to protect themselves and others.

A Tool Kit

A Tool Kit is a compilation of electronic or print materials containing educational tools designed to inform, educate, support, assist and guide a person on a specific subject or area being addressed.

Tool Kits provide information on a specific topic and with a specific goal, such as Narconon Arrowhead’s Prescription Drug Abuse Took Kit providing factual and vital information on prescription drug abuse and addiction, recovery and treatment. Its specific goal is to accurately inform and educate the general public, as well as provide solutions for those who already are victims of prescription drug abuse or addiction.

The easy access to and instant availability of an online Took Kit makes it especially useful in the broad and effective sharing of important information to those in need of it.
Additionally, with the use of social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter as well as a host of other commonly used social media tools and sites, the informational exchange of the contents of the Tool Kit through these online venues is highly effective in spreading awareness of the issues surrounding prescription drug abuse.
