Rx Drug Abuse Prevention Starts at Home
Every day, 2,000 teenagers use a prescription drug to get high for the first time. It can be as easy as opening a cupboard, drawer or medicine cabinet. If your child is prescribed medication: talk to the prescribing physician about safety guidelines; monitor the family’s prescriptions; secure them tightly in a locked cabinet; and properly dispose of expired, unused medications. Irvington has an Rx Take Back Days on January 20 and April 28 at Irvington Town Hall from 10am – 2pm. Permanent MedReturn boxes are available 24/7 in the Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry Police stations.
