Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF-Rx) Initiative
Stephanie Moran, Primary Prevention Services Coordinator
The purpose of SPF-Rx is to reduce non-medical use of prescription drugs and prevent opioid overdoses by developing and implementing a comprehensive prevention strategy that raises awareness about the dangers of sharing medications for individuals age 12 and over, and work with the pharmaceutical and medical communities on the risks of overprescribing to young adults.
