Prescription drugs have become an integral player in today’s opioid epidemic, but they had already been negatively impacting Hispanic and Latino communities in the United States. This webinar will describe how, utilizing the Strategic Prevention Framework, one Latino-serving organization in Georgia has been able to develop and deliver a bilingual, bi- cultural substance abuse prevention program to address prescription drugs for the past five years. Through the use of different environmental strategies, they have been able to increase the awareness of the problem in the community and develop solutions to recognize and prevent prescription drug misuse.
