Lock Your Meds campaign comes to Odyssey House

Melanie R., a young woman in treatment at the Odyssey House Lafayette Avenue Teen Girls Program, was interviewed last night about prescription drug abuse by Dr. Jay Adlersberg, WABC-7’s health and medical reporter. Melanie spoke about how easy it is for teenagers to get prescription drugs, showing how important it is for adults to lock up their medications.
The segment highlighted the Lock Your Meds campaign and the rising rate of prescription drug abuse among teenagers. Lock Your Meds is a national multi-media campaign designed to make adults aware that they are the “unwitting suppliers” of prescription medications being used in unintended ways, especially by young people. The campaign is produced by National Family Partnership.
