"I am always so impressed with your hours (and hours and hours...) of service to our community. Thanks for making the Shred-A-Thon possible!" ~ Mindy Sevoia, Principal, Sequoia Village School, Linden, AZ
"I appreciate the brevity and straightforwardness of the monthly Prevention Press newsletter. Great information for our communities. I’ll post this on our informational bulletin boards." ~ Gabriel Isa Madrone, DES/Rehabilitation Services Administration, Show Low, AZ
"If you're the one who's been assembling the contents of your web site, my congratulations. Our teens are so bombarded from bath salts to hard drugs, I think it's great that you've been able to present these things in addition to covering the developing brain. I hope your community appreciates your work." ~ Maureen Herron, M.A.T. Executive Director MH-Global Communications Network, Phoenix
I’m so glad that our community has you as a strong advocate and leader." ~ Best, Michelle Pansulla
"Thank you for allowing me to attend the Coalition meeting last week and listen to the various reports and planning discussions. I summarized some of the main discussion points and forwarded them to Congresswoman Kirkpatrick. I want to note, from my own previous experiences with work groups consisting of a variety of representatives, goals, schedules and agendas, I know it’s not easy at times to maintain a consistent interest and energy level to work toward common goals. It’s obvious this is an involved group of stakeholders that have a passion for what they are doing; which I know is in no small part due to your leadership and commitment to these efforts. I sincerely commend you for your work." ~ Very best regards, Bruce Sitko, Community Outreach Office of Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick
Thank you for all you do within and for our community! You're the best!" Dr. Jose I. Garcia, Counselor

According to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, every day, 2,500 kids age 12-17 abuse a prescription painkiller for the first time and more people are getting addicted to prescription drugs. Drug treatment admissions for prescription painkillers increased more than 300 percent from 1995 to 2005. Teens are abusing prescription drugs because many believe the myth that these drugs provide a "safe" high. Especially troubling is that the majority of teens who abuse prescription drugs say they are easy to get and are often free.
