 Medication Lock Boxes

Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem, most particularly among teens.  First, teens often do not realize the dangers of different medications, believing that since the medications were prescribed by a doctor, they must be safe.  Second, they are easy to obtain, as most homes contain medication in their cabinets.  According to FACE, then Prevention Resource Group, "Every day 2,500 youth from ages 12-17 abuse prescription pain killers for the first time."  This is not just happening among older teens.  FACE also comments that "Prescription drugs are now the drug of choice among 12-13 year olds." 

 

To request a free medication lock box, please contact Amanda Hager at (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or calling 765-471-9916.
