The Safe Homes Coalition is proud to join with the San Diego Association of Realtors® and other partners to continue the Keep Kids Safe Education Program. Together, this powerful coalition of stakeholders is united toward the mission of reducing overdose death associated with the misuse and abuse of prescription medications in throughout San Diego County.
With one of the highest rates of narcotic abuse and a significant portion of drug overdoses related to prescription drugs, California has a particular need for a multi-faceted approach to this complex crisis. This is why public safety leaders such as San Diego District Attorney Summer Stephan and San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, the healthcare community, recovery advocates, and so many others have come together in this Keep Kids Safe Program to encourage you to make your house a safe home through safe use, safe storage, and safe disposal of prescription medications.
What began in 2014 as a focused effort to remove prescription drugs from open houses has expanded this year to a region-wide effort to remove expired and unwanted prescription medications from homes throughout San Diego County.
With countless numbers of prescription pills sitting in the medicine cabinets of homes across the country, we invite you to join us in the fight as we lead countywide community walks with government officials, program partners and other volunteers to inform families about the dangers of opioid abuse and how to safely dispose of expired, unwanted and unused prescription medicine in the household.
