Our vision is to reduce the number of deaths in Australia from prescription medication misuse

Prescription medication dependence is a medical condition that can happen to a family member, work colleague, friend, neighbour or to you.

 

We prevent the harms associated with prescription medications through raising awareness, engagement and advocacy.
