NEW YORK -- On Saturday, Nov. 10, the American Medicine Chest Challenge (AMCC) -- a public health initiative to raise awareness about the dangers of prescription drug abuse -- will be held in communities throughout the nation.

This initiative will challenge families across the United States to take the Five-Step American Medicine Chest Challenge:

•Take inventory of your prescription and over-the-counter medicine.

•Lock your medicine chest.

•Dispose of your unused, unwanted, and expired medicine in your home or at an AMMC deposit site.

•Take your medicine(s) exactly as prescribed.

•Talk to your children about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has labeled prescription drug abuse an epidemic, reporting that the death toll from overdoses of prescription painkillers has more than tripled in the past decade and more than 40 people die every day from overdoses involving narcotic pain relievers.

According to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, 70 percent of people who abuse prescription pain relievers obtained them from friends or relatives, and there has been a 400 percent increase in substance abuse treatment admissions for people abusing prescription drugs.
