Did you know that 50,000 young children visit emergency rooms every year due to accidental ingestion of medications? Or that two-thirds of teens and young adults who misuse prescription drugs get them from family, friends or acquaintances? In fact, in Berks County, 49 percent of teens who said they had abused prescription drugs in the 2019 Pennsylvania Youth Survey claimed to have acquired them “from someone living in my home.” Another 34 percent said they had been given prescription drugs from a friend or family member. Keep your loved ones safe by securely storing and properly disposing of over-the-counter and prescription medications.
