 Medication Lock Boxes




Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem, most particularly among teens.


Teens often do not realize the dangers of different medications, believing that since the medications were prescribed by a doctor, they must be safe. They are easy to obtain, as most homes contain medication in their cabinets.  According to FACE, the 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."  The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids suggests that you approach securing your prescriptions the same way you would other valuables in your home, like jewelry or cash. Even if you do not have teens or children in your home, realize that many of these medications have street value, and could easily be stolen, sold, or used by someone without a prescription. By taking your medications out of the cabinets and securing them in a place only you know about, you may be able to reduce the chances of young children getting ahold of them, them being stolen, or teens misusing/abusing prescriptions. 


Tippecanoe County residents are eligible to receive a free medication lock box! For more information, 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.
