More than 70 percent of prescription drug abusers state they got them from friends or relatives; therefore, parents should consider talking with their children early and often about the dangers of prescription drug abuse. To help combat this, residents can anonymously and safely dispose of unwanted and expired drugs and medications 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“Your child could be one pill or teaspoon away from indulging in prescription drugs,” said
Dr. Gregory Wm. Branch. “Parents and guardians please take inventory of what is in your medicine cabinets and secure all unexpired medications that are genuinely needed.” 
 If you or a loved one is suffering from an alcohol, tobacco or drug (illegal or prescription) addiction, help is available. Call the Department of Health at 410-88-REACH (410-887-3224).
