Safely Storage of Prescription Medications

To increase knowledge on how and why to safely store prescription medications we have raised awareness using the following talking points:

  • 38% of childhood poisonings involve a grand parents medication
  • Most people who abuse prescription drugs get them from FREE from a friend or relative.
  • 1 in 5 teens admits to abusing pain pills
We provided 920 lock boxes iMarch-April 2017 to persons with at risk individuals in their homes. The lock boxes provide education on them and have a flyer with them promoting safe disposal.
