Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – What’s In Your Medicine Cabinet?

Every day, more than 2500 teenagers abuse prescription medication for the first time. Sadly, teens often experiment with medications they find right at home. Many young people think that it is safer to misuse prescription medications than illegal street drugs. That is simply not true.

Our guest today is Bryan Johnson from Bridge Back Interventions. Bryan is a certified addictions counselor and facilitates interventions for treatment centers located around the country. He is a national speaker on addiction.

Sarah Ramsey is with Bryan today. She works with Bryan and speaks nationally to parents and teens about the RX epidemic across the country.
