Take the Pledge to Lock Your Meds
Ease of access is the #1 reason youth misuse prescription drugs—75 percent of opioid misuse starts with using medication that wasn’t prescribed for them-usually taken from a friend or family member. A national study indicated that 29 percent of parents with children 18 years-of-age and younger report storing medications safely in the home-in a latched or locked location. We can do better. Together, we can achieve 100%. Locking up medications is easy and important. For your kids' sake, pledge to lock your meds!
