Saving Lives through Education, Prevention and Prayers
- Use prescription painkillers only as directed by a health care provider.
- Make sure they are the only one to use their prescription painkillers. Not selling or sharing them with others helps prevent misuse and abuse.
- Store prescription painkillers in a secure place and dispose of them properly.
- Encourage legislatures to pass, enforce and evaluate pill mill, doctor shopping and other laws to reduce prescription painkiller abuse.
- Encourage professional licensing boards to take action against inappropriate prescribing.

Other Organized Rx Abuse Prevention Advocates
We are a bi-national organization in the U.S. and Canada, comprised of people who have been adversely affected by the consequences of the massive over-prescribing of prescription opioid pain pills, otherwise known as narcotics. We are bereaved parents, siblings and spouses, families of those suffering through an addiction, pain patients, doctors, and citizen advocates working toward more balanced care for patients who suffer from chronic pain, without causing harm to them and to the general public.
Our mission is to reduce morbidity and mortality resulting from prescribing of opioids and to promote cautious, safe and responsible opioid prescribing practices.
