Please join us in letting our elected officials know that we are not going to stand by and watch our citizens die from the lack of oversight regarding prescription drugs. A Controlled Substance Registry will monitor the rate at which doctors are prescribing addictive medications, and thereby reducing the number of "pill mills" and doctor shopping. Mandatory Physician Training and Patient information to increase the knowledge of the effects of precription opiates and other controlled substances.
All of these efforts will reduce the skyrocketing numbers of prescription pain pills which are illegally finding their way onto our streets and into our citizens. Hydrocodone and Oxycontin are two of the most abused drugs. In New York State alone 37 prescriptions are written for every 100 citizens and in Western New York that rate is almost doubled with 65 per every 100 citizens. These statistics are alarming and similar results are shared throughout the USA.
Please stand with us and help us Save the Michaels of the World.

Prescription drug abuse knows no boundaries. It can start with your own doctor, or right in your own medicine cabinet from unused prescription pain medication. The rate at which opiates are being prescribed is destroying our loved ones, our families, and ultimately our future.
