Healthcare providers—from family physicians to dentists—educate patients about prevention and taking care of themselves and their families. Medication safety should be among the topics covered with all patients—no matter their ages.
Opioids and Teens
Teenagers often receive their first exposure to opioids and other controlled substances as a result of wisdom teeth removal or orthopedic injuries. Unfortunately, an estimated three percent of those teens go on to misuse opioids. Providers can help reduce the risks associated with keeping unused medication in the home by educating teens and their parents and providing them with DisposeRx packets.
DisposeRx at-home medication disposal packets are currently available to pharmacies through DisposeRxDirect.com and wholesalers like AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, and others.
