Safety & Compliance Services 
It takes more than knowing the rules to be in compliance......... 
When you talk to your children about drugs and alcohol be sure to include prescription drugs in the conversation.
 
Teens are abusing prescription drugs they find at home.
  • Every day, 2500 kids age 12-17 try a painkiller for the first time.
  • Prescription drugs are the drugs of choice for 12 and 13 year olds.
  • Teens abuse prescription drugs more that any illicit street drug except marijuana.

 


Here are some ways parents can keep prescription drugs from affecting their kids' lives.
  • Safeguard all drugs at home. Monitor quantities and control access.
  • Set clear rules for teens about all drug use, including not sharing medicine and always following the medical provider's advice and dosages.
  • Be a good role model by following the same rules with your own medicines.
  • Properly conceal and dispose of old or unused medicines in the trash.
  • Ask friends and family to safeguard their prescription drugs as well.
