Indiana steps up fight against prescription drug abuse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana is stepping up the fight against prescription drug abuse.  A new website was just launched to help people recognize symptoms of addiction.

It gives information on where to go for help and how to report illegal activities by doctors or others.

The program was launched at the Indiana State Fair on Friday.  Health officials say more Americans abuse prescription drugs than cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, and inhalants combined.

That website is www.BitterPill.IN.gov.
