Lock Your Meds
The Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition announces the launch the Lock Your Meds Media Campaign, a national multi-media campaign designed to reduce prescription drug abuse. Lock Your Meds® is a call to action for all parents and families to take a stand against the alarming increase in prescription drug abuse. Since 70% of prescription drug abusers report getting the drugs from their friends and families, these “unwitting suppliers” can be a force in curbing the abuse. The Campaign, produced by the National Family Partnership, makes adults aware that they are the “unwitting suppliers” of prescription medications being used in unintended ways, especially by young people.
