Did you know that more than 70% of people aged 12 and up who misuse or abuse say they obtained prescription drugs from a friend or family member? Because prescription drugs aren’t illegal drugs, many teens find them more acceptable to use and they aren’t aware of the dangers that exist!
Use Iowa Medicine TLC: Talk to you teens about the dangers of prescription and OTC drugs, Lock or secure your medications in a safe place, and Connect with the Iowa Substance Abuse Information Center to get additional resources and help! For more information go to www.IowaMedicineTLC.org
