Top Docs Radio on Midtown Business RadioX Features the "Think About It" Campaign

Gay, Slack and Murphy Discuss Their New Campaign to Reduce Prescription Medication Abuse

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - December 02, 2014) - On November 12th, 2014, Top Docs Radio welcomed Dallas Gay, Dr. Tennant Slack and Lori Cassidy Murphy from the Medical Association of Georgia. Host CW Hall led the discussion, which focused on their recently-launched campaign to fight prescription medication abuse and addiction.

"Think About It" is a program conducted by the Medical Association of Georgia Foundation for the purpose of reducing the incidence of prescription drug abuse and resulting deaths. The campaign is being funded by the Medical Association of Georgia Foundation and is working to raise awareness of this issue among Georgia's residents as well as healthcare providers who prescribe controlled medications.

"Addiction is a strange disease that is normally not acknowledged or treated until the effects have become disastrous," said Gay. "It is an ongoing disease that one never fully recovers from."

The "Think About It" campaign involves a wide array of organizations, including medical societies, the Georgia Composite Medical Board, the Georgia Board of Pharmacy, the Georgia Pharmacy Association, the Council on Alcohol and Drugs, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation -- as well as other law enforcement agencies, schools, and business and religious and other community organizations.

To learn more about the "Think About It" campaign, listen to the entire interview on Top Docs Radio.
