The Age Of Addiction
Addiction can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, gender, or social status. Always be aware of what your friends and family members are being prescribed; and if they are unable to manage it themselves, make sure there is someone there who can.
Danger Of The Game
In the world of sports , injuries are not uncommon. Danger of the Game takes a look at high school & college athletes, parents, and doctors who weigh in on the effects of opiate addiction.
Medical procedures and injuries are just two of many common factors in the path to opiate addiction. Whether your child is recovering from a dental procedure, a sports injury, or an everyday accident, always be aware of the potential dangers of prescription painkillers. When necessary, they should only be used short-term and under close scrutiny.
Grandma's Medicine Cabinet
Prescriptions of all kinds tend to accumulate over the years. Sometimes because they are forgotten about, or maybe just because people aren't sure what to do with them. However, these medications do not always go unused. A full medicine cabinet can be a candy store to someone who knows what they are looking for. It is important to always properly dispose of your unused medications.
