Critical Key Messages

Prescription drugs are safe and effective when used as prescribed by a doctor but can be dangerous and even deadly when misused or abused.

Prescription drug abuse is a significant problem in Ohio and can affect anyone, regardless of race or socioeconomic status.

Prescription drugs must be locked in a secure place when kept in the home and should be properly disposed of when they are no longer needed.

Seniors have become a prime target for those interested in obtaining prescription medications illegally.
