Lock Up Your Meds
Stevenson‘s Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator, Dr. Cristina Cortesi, will share regular reflections during the school year in the Daily Digest. For more information on Dr. Cortesi and the substance abuse prevention program, visit her web page.
Approximately 20 percent of students who have misused prescription drugs obtained them in their own homes or from the home of a neighbor or friend. It is important for parents to dispense medications to their children or teens rather than leaving this responsibility to them. Prescription medications should always be kept in a locked box or cabinet, and disposed of properly when no longer needed. The Lincolnshire, Buffalo Grove and Vernon Hills police departments have disposal boxes on site. For a complete list of take-back sites, click here. If you need a lock box, please email me as Stand Strong provides them free of charge.
