Communicating your questions and concerns with your doctor or dentist about the prescriptions you’re getting is an important habit to start to keep yourself and your family safe.
Get in these simple habits to keep your medications secure. Two-thirds of teens and young adults who report abuse get prescription medication from friends, family, and acquaintances.
Safely disposing of your expired and unused medications is critical. This simple habit alone will significantly decrease the opportunities for abuse and accidental overdose poisoning.
It’s OK to ask.
Uncomfortable conversations save lives.
It's OK to ask questions and have discussions about prescription medications with your friends, your family, and even your medical care providers. If you're unsure about something, ask. If you're concerned about someone, ask. If you're looking for a way to help, ask. Our blog focuses on uncomfortable discussions and offers ideas for having them. If you've had an uncomfortable conversation that went well, or if you're anticipating an uncomfortable conversation in your near future, drop us a note in the Contact Form. We'd love to hear your story or offer you some helpful advice. We're all in this together. You are not alone!
