Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem and most particularly among teens.  First, teens often do not realize the dangers, believing that since they were prescribed by a doctors them must be safe.  Second, they are easy to get as most homes contain medications 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 Jennifer Swartz at 765-471-9916.
