Misuse of prescription drugs is a common way for teens and adults to start down the road of addiction. The most typical place young people get access to prescription drugs is their home medicine cabinet. A few simple steps can have a significant impact on limiting unsafe access to these powerful drugs:
- Immediately and safely dispose of any unused medication (for more information on disposing of medication, see www.newtonma.gov/newtonpath)
- Secure all prescription drugs that are currently being used in a lock box or other inaccessible location.
- Track all prescriptions, including counting pills to ensure they are not being taken inappropriately.
- Talk to your kids about never taking any drugs that are not prescribed specifically for them by their health care provider.
- Talk to your health care provider about limiting prescriptions of opioids and seeking alternative strategies for pain management when possible.
