Rx Safety and Awareness

Want to help address addiction?

Start with your medicine cabinet.

 

One important step we can all take to help address addiction is to safely dispose of old and unused prescription medications. Many first-time encounters with opioids happen in homes with leftover medications that were initially prescribed by a physician. Whether it's those pain relievers in the medicine cabinet from last year's dental procedure or the forgotten bottle of sleeping pills in the night table, prescription drugs can be extremely dangerous if they fall into the wrong hands. It takes mere moments to safely dispose of old medications, but this precaution can have a lifelong impact.
