Working to reduce prescription drug abuse in Early County.

The goal of the GenRx initiative is to reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse among 12-25 year olds in Early County.
Here’s how we are doing that. . .

Lock, Monitor, Take Back Campaign

These simple three steps help reduce the access that young people have to prescription medications.

Parent Presentations

We provide training for parents and other adults on medication safety in the home, warning signs of medicine abuse and how to talk to your child about the dangers of prescription drug abuse. Participants also receive a free lock box.
