Lock Your Meds Idaho!


Prescription drug abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy. In 2010, seven million individuals age 12 or older were current nonmedical users of prescription drugs.

Idaho has experienced a 250% increase in drug induced deaths since 2000. In Idaho in 2011, over 20% of high school students reported taking a prescription drug without a doctor’s prescription. These youth overwhelmingly reported that they obtained these drugs from family members or friends. Your medicine cabinet, nightstand, purse could be their drug supplier. Be Aware. Don’t Share.
