Life-Saving Tips from the
NJ Poison Center
The NJ Poison Center aims to raise awareness about the problem of prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) misuse/abuse, possibly our nation’s fastest-growing drug abuse concern (even more so than street drug abuse). Unintentional poisoning deaths from medicine misuse/abuse have risen in the last few years and now rank as the number one cause of unintentional deaths from injuries, more than motor vehicle crashes. Teens and young adults misuse Rx and OTC medicines to get high for two reasons: these products are readily available in home medicine cabinets; and they do not carry the stigma that street drugs do.
Call to Action: The NJ Poison Experts ask New Jersey residents to LOCK UP all medicines (Rx, OTC, dietary, and herbal) and monitor their family’s Rx and OTC medicine use by keeping track of both the number of pills in bottles and refill frequency. Properly dispose of all unused and/or outdated medicines. Drop-off sites are available statewide; contact the NJ Poison Experts at (800) 222-1222 for a site near you.
Taking these steps will reduce the number of teens and young adults using medicine to get high, and will also decrease the number of toddlers and pets who unintentionally ingest medicines. The poison experts are available to help 24/7. Program your cell, home and office phones with the Poison Helpline: (800) 222-1222. Join us on Facebook and Twitter.
