National Family Partnership Calls on Parents to 'Lock Your Meds'
Date:10/27/2009

>Take inventory of your current medications and periodically check that nothing is missing.
  • Educate yourself and your children about the most commonly abused types of prescription medications and communicate the dangers to your child regularly.
  • Set clear rules and monitor behavior by expressing your disapproval of using prescription drugs without a prescription.
  • Properly dispose of old and unused medications.
  • To help parents take these steps and prevent the problem of prescription drug abuse in their homes, the campaign website (http://www.lockyourmeds.com) includes easy-to-use resources such as a home medicine inventory card and downloadable guidelines on how to properly dispose of prescription medicine. Parents can take a stand against prescription drug abuse by signing an online pledge and sharing their message with friends and family.

    About the Red Ribbon Campaign

    Each year, the Red Ribbon Campaign reaches millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week who are asked to wear a symbolic red ribbon to show their personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a drug-free America. The Red Ribbon Campaign was launched when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985, thus beginning the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The theme for this year's campaign is "Drug Free is the Key."
