The CADCA 50 Challenge!

At CADCA, we’re always trying to find ways to contribute to the solution, which is why we designed the “CADCA 50 Challenge”.

To participate in the challenge, just host a town hall meeting, or another type of educational event, about BOTH prescription drug abuse and OTC cough medicine abuse, during National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month (NMAAM) in October.
