Help end the drugging of California nursing home residents. The goal of the campaign is to stop nursing homes and doctors from misusing dangerous antipsychotic drugs and other types of psychoactive drugs to chemically restrain residents and to replace drugging with individualized care. Through education, advocacy and political action, we seek to bring Californians together to end this harmful practice.
Drugging of California’s Nursing Home residents is at an all-time high. Join our Campaign Against Drugging and sign our petition to the Governor urging him to crack down on misuse of psychoactive drugs in nursing homes. Together we can turn the rising tide of drugging in California’s Nursing Homes.
