The Commonwealth is coming together to address prescription drug misuse and abuse.
The Safe Homes Coalition is proud to join with the Greater Boston Association of Realtors®, a division of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board as our Community Partner, Learn to Cope as our Education Partner, and Millennium Health as our Founding Partner to bring together an incredibly powerful coalition of stakeholders toward the singular mission of reducing overdose death associated with the misuse and abuse of prescription medications in Greater Boston and throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
With one of the highest rates of narcotic abuse and a significant portion of drug overdoses related to prescription drugs, Massachusetts has a particular need for a multi-faceted approach to this complex crisis. This is why public safety and elected officials, the medical and dental community, recovery advocates, athletes, and so many others are coming 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.
Be a part of the solution. Support the Safe Homes Coalition Keep Kids Safe Program by asking a coalition member for a re-sealable plastic bag in which to place your medications, and see below to find a list of drop-box locations to take those medications once they are no longer needed.
