SPRINGDALE, Ark (KFTA) — Arkansas is number one in the nation for teen prescription drug abuse, and local organizations are working to fix that.

Ozark Guidance and the Association for Addiction Professionals held a training session today for health care professionals in Northwest Arkansas.

Since drug abuse can often lead to mental health issues, today’s seminar focused on how to treat both so patients don’t fall back into the cycle of using.

Arkansas also ranks second for opioid prescriptions per person. Ozark Guidance is a great resource if you or someone you know is struggling with opioids or drugs. Visit the website or call (479) 750-2020.
