CHEYENNE, Wyo - A new education campaign is being launched in Wyoming to help prevent prescription drug misuse and abuse by teens and young adults.

The Wyoming Department of Health says the campaign is titled "They Didn't Know" and is presented by the Wyoming Rx Abuse Stakeholders.

The organization is a statewide volunteer group made up of representatives from health, substance abuse, law enforcement and social services agencies who have worked on issues stemming from prescription drug abuse and other opioid abuse.

The educational campaign targets Wyoming youth 12 to 25 years of age using several types of digital media.
