USAOs Involved in Prevention
The Offices of U.S. Attorneys have engaged in prescription drug abuse prevention on a national and local level. The Offices of U.S. Attorneys is partnered with the Partnership at Drugfree.org to promote its national campaign, “Medicine Abuse Project.” Individual U.S. Attorney Offices promote this important effort through television interviews, webinars, op-eds, and social media. U.S. Attorney Offices across the country also encourage members of their community to participate in DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day by turning in unneeded prescription medications – at no cost, and with no questions asked. At the local level, individual U.S. Attorney’s Offices have partnered with state and local law enforcement and private partners to engage our communities at the grassroots level.
