Opioid Prevention Task Force

Prescription drug and Opioid abuse remains a major challenge in our community.

Studies show that a teen is more likely to have abused a prescription drug than an illegal street drug. And many teens believe prescription drugs are safe because they were prescribed by a doctor.

The Opioid Prevention Task Force is set up to reduce this abuse throughout Palm Beach County.

Our strategies for addressing prescription drug and Opioid abuse include:

-- Community education on the dangers and pitfalls of abusing prescription medication and other Opioids. For more information Click Here

-- Educating Doctors and other prescribers on the CDC's proper prescribing methods. Which can be found at: www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/training/online-training.html

-- Partnering with the Medicine Abuse Project where you can take the pledge to learn more about teen medicine abuse and safeguarding your medicine. Click here to learn more.  

-- Creating a network of prescription drug drop off boxes across Palm Beach County so you can safely dispose of your unused medicine. Find the closest location to your home here.  

-- Informing our community about the importance of locking medicine and encouraging families to get locked medicine boxes, such as LockMed and other products.
