INDIANAPOLIS (WHAS11) -- Indiana state officials have launched a new website to help Hoosiers recognize symptoms of prescription drug addiction.

The site offers information on where to go for help and how to report illegal activities by doctors or others.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller joined state and local health officials at the Indiana State Fair on Friday, Aug. 16, to begin a statewide public awareness campaign about the issue.

Health officials say more Americans abuse prescription drugs than cocaine, heroin and other drugs combined.
