The National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Strategy: 2011-12 Update is a product of consultations with more than 40 experts from various sectors of society. The Strategy has been endorsed by 30 not-for-profit health and safety organizations and professional associations.
CLAAD’s policy positions are established through a consensus process, in which at least 80 percent of the participants must represent not-for-profit organizations. This rule of governance ensures that the public interest drives CLAAD’s priorities, as opposed to the interests of individual stakeholders.
“As a Registered Nurse, I fully understand the need for patients to have access to medications, but unfortunately, I know too well the urgency of the need to reduce prescription drug abuse, as I lost my son, Ryan, to prescription drugs. RYAN’s Cause is pleased to grant its endorsement of this strategy.”
– Francine Haight, Founder of Ryan’s Cause (Reaching Youths Abusing Narcotics)
