Protect your Teen from Prescription Drug Abuse

Communication:

Talk to your teen and educate them that taking prescription medication without a doctor’s supervision can be as dangerous and potentially lethal as taking illicit drugs.

Safety Measure:

Keep medication out of sight in your home and educate fellow Parents and family members whose homes your teen visits that the medicine cabinet, cupboard or drawers are not where prescription drugs are meant to be stored.

Inventory:

Constantly take inventory of your prescription in your home and pay close attention to the quantities.

Discard Unused Medication:

Safely disposing expired or unused prescription medication is a critical step in protecting your teens. This decreases the opportunity for your teens or their friends to abuse your medications.
