Safe Storage And Disposal

Take Action to Address Medicine Abuse

It’s up to all of us to take action against medicine abuse. The best place to start is within your own home by ensuring that you’re aware of the medication in your home as well as by talking with your kids and family about the dangers of medicine abuse.

Counting Medication

It is important to count your pills once every two weeks. This will deter theft and will help to ensure that your medication is taken correctly.

Count It! Lock It! Drop It!® (CLD)

Count It! Lock It! Drop It! is a community initiative supported by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation. CLD empowers and educates individuals on how they can help prevent prescription drug misuse by properly counting, locking or disposing of prescription medications.
