Survey Finds 1 In 5 College Students Have Abused Prescription Medication
from The Huffington Post
A new survey released by the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids found that abuse of prescription stimulants is "becoming normalized" among college students and other young adults. Titled "Under Pressure: College Students And The Abuse of RX Stimulants," the survey polled over 1,600 young adults (students and non-students ages 18-25) and found that among the college students who participated, one in five had abused prescription stimulants — such as Adderall, Ritalin or Vyvanse — at least once in their lifetime. One in seven non-students said they had abused the medication at least once.
