Why Take Prescription Drug Safety? 

The decision to use a substance is something most college students will encounter during their first few weeks of being on campus. With prescription drug misuse being a growing issue, and opioid misuse becoming the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S, we want to be sure that you know what it takes to be a safe and healthy Buckeye here at The Ohio State University. Prescription Drug Safety is a part of Ohio State's comprehensive approach of educating students to create a safe and healthy campus.  

How Long Will Prescription Drug Safety Take?
