For Community Advocates

While the work of even one person can make a difference, we are stronger together. Communities need to come together to combat over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine abuse.  If you’re a member of a local community anti-drug coalition, engaged in other community advocacy activities, or simply want to get involved, then this toolkit is for you!
