When we think about the drugs our youth are exposed to, addictive drugs like heroin and cocaine often come to mind. However, the prescription drugs stored in our medicine cabinets, night stands, and kitchen counters are as addictive, dangerous, and deadly as these street drugs.
Prescription painkillers are as addictive as heroin because they are opioids, just like heroin. To help prevent abuse and misuse, it’s advisable to keep all medicines stored in a safe and locked compartment and out of the reach of children, youth and pets.
