Over-the-Counter Does Not Mean On-the-Counter Campaign
RI Regional Prevention Coalitions, 2021
It’s too easy for your child or teen to access drugs left on kitchen or bathroom counters and medicine cabinets. The RI Regional Prevention Coalitions’ Over-the-Counter Does Not Mean On-the-Counter campaign helps remind parents and caregivers to always securely store ALL painkillers and other common drugs. Securing ALL medications in the home is not only safe, it’s smart! When it comes to safe medication storage, always remember:
- Count It! Keep a small number in a childproof bottle. Lock the rest.
- Lock It! Use a Lock Bag to secure medications away from youth.
- Drop It! Drop off unused pills at a Drop Box.
