What It Spells - 30 Seconds - Transcript


NARRATOR: Unused prescription opioid pain medicines can spell trouble. They can spell risk if  taken by someone they weren’t prescribed for, harm if accidentally taken by a child or pet, or  overdose if they’re not used as directed. Safely dispose of opioids before they can hurt your family. Find a drug take-back option, such as medicine drop boxes. You may find these in your community, at local pharmacies, or police stations.
