5 ways to keep medication
in the right hands

  1. Install a medicine cabinet with a lock and key — a simple solution.
  2. Store prescription drugs in a safe, a locked drawer or a filling cabinet.
  3. Keep your medication somewhere outside of your home (e.g. at work).
  4. Dispose of unused drugs safely by returning them to a local pharmacy.
  5. Talk to your teens about the dangers of abusing prescription drugs.

It’s simple — just take
back old prescriptions

Your kids and their friends need you to return all unused and expired medication to your local participating pharmacy.
