Protect your kids! Prescription drug alert
Many young people believe it is safe to take
“medicine” out of the cabinet even if that medicine was not prescribed
for them. And many of today's prescriptions are written for pain
medications that can be deadly, addictive and in some cases lead to
the use of very dangerous illegal drugs like heroin.
Education is the key. Parents: speak to your teens
about the dangers of misusing prescription drugs and why they should not
use other persons' medications.
