Safe storage is a big part of stopping drug misuse and abuse. Keep your medications safe and out of reach. It takes very little time and keeps children, pets, family and visitors safe.
Safe storage isn’t just a smart idea—it’s a responsibility.
Tips for Storing Your Medications
Medications that end up in the wrong hands (especially controlled substances such as opioids) can be extremely dangerous. Don’t take the risk—it’s not worth losing a loved one.
