Medicine Lock Boxes
Prescription drug abuse and addiction is a problem in our communities that can beginning when unauthorized persons have access to prescriptions drugs not meant for them.
Through the distribution of medicine lock boxes, Power of Prevention is helping to assist with preventing the diversion of prescription drugs and encouraging prescription drug safe storage and disposal. Lock boxes keep medicine out of the hands of those they are not prescribed, in particular, children.
This program complements ‘Up and Away’, a safe storage program endorsed by the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. To learn more about prescription drug safety here in Maine, contact Power of Prevention or visit: http://www.upandaway.org
