• Understand the risks associated with any opioid prescriptions.
  • If you aren't comfortable with opioids and the risks associated with them, talk to your doctor about other pain medications that you would be more comfortable with. 
  • Use your prescriptions as they were prescribed
  • Keep them in a safe and secure place that is not easily accessible to others. 
  • If you don't use all of the opioids prescribed to you, dispose of them at a drop off site. Find a local drop off location here.
