Lock Your Meds

Lock Your Meds® is a national multi-media campaign designed to reduce prescription drug abuse by making adults aware that they are the “unwitting suppliers” of prescription medications being used in unintended ways, especially by young people. Produced by National Family Partnership® (NFP), the campaign includes a wide array of advertisements, posters, educational materials, publicity opportunities, inter-active games and slide show presentations, with all roads leading to this website, where visitors can learn more and ask questions. The SAFE Glen Cove Coalition delivered opiate prevention presentation twice a year to members of the community. Mr. Jolly’s Pharmacy and Walgreens have pledged support to the campaign, agreeing to attach a special sticker to all prescription of controlled substances during the month of March that read “Don’t forget to Lock Up These Meds!” reminding patrons the importance of safeguarding medications. Both pharmacies distribute medication tracing cards and opiate related prevention literature.
