60-70% of teens report that their home medicine cabinet is their source for drugs. Drop off your unused prescriptions to National Prescription Take Back Day to keep your medicine cabinet from being anyone’s source of drugs.
Red Ribbon Week is a way for our communities to unite and take a stand against drug use and abuse. Each year, Drug Us is Life Abuse provides Orange County children in grades K-12 a Red Ribbon wrist band to show they choose to live drug free.
The Red Ribbon Campaign® began when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This spurred the tradition of displaying red ribbons every October as a symbol of intolerance to drugs.
