Some Delaware schools are doing their part to fight prescription drug abuse among teenagers.

Students from A.I. DuPont High School listened as nurses announced the initiative in Greenville Friday.

The program features extensive lessons about prescription drugs at every school in the Red Clay District.

Public health officials say that 20 percent of high school students have taken medications NOT prescribed to them by a doctor.
