66% of children who abuse prescription drugs get them from family or friends.

Here are some guidelines for prescription drug abuse prevention:

LOCK YOUR MEDS- prevent your kids from abusing your own medication by securing your meds in places your children cannot access

TAKE INVENTORY- Download your Home Inventory Card at This is an easy way to keep track of your meds.

EDUCATE YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN- Learn about the mostly commonly abused prescription meds and share with dangers with your children.

SET CLEAR RULES AND MONITOR BEHAVIOR- Express disapproval of using prescription drugs without a prescription.

PASS IT ON- Share what you know and have learned with others. Help be a change agent for a drug-free society.

PROPER DISPOSAL OF OLD AND UNUSED MEDICATIONS- Visit for guidelines for disposal.

The NED Show will present to our students on Monday at 1:30.
