Medication safety is important for everyone of all ages. It is never too early to have a conversation with a child about not taking medicine unless an adult is giving it to them. Make sure they know the difference between medication and candy and not to touch or take anything, again, unless it is given to them by an adult.
Our goal is to keep everyone safe. Please review the sheets below and monitor, secure, and safely dispose of all medications in your home.
The Raymond Coalition For Youth partners with our local police station and the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) to host medication disposal Take Back events each spring and fall. We also have a medication disposal box inside our police station and have provided a number of ways to practice medication safety below.
If you have any questions please contact our office.
If Only: we want to make sure you know about a powerful video: "If Only" produced by the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. Every parent, teen, and young adult should see this video. It addresses prescription drug abuse, peer pressure, the struggles as a parent dealing with this issue, and more.
