What is a memory you would never forget? One memory I will never forget is the day I received a phone call that my cousin who was younger than me was in trouble. She had accidentally taken a family member’s prescription drugs. She was young and didn’t know better. The prescription drugs old and just laying around. To a little one, something like this could have easily looked like a piece of candy or even a small toy. As she was rushed to the hospital no one knew what the outcome would be. But we all knew one thing this could have been prevented. Lucky for my sweet cousin she ended up being okay and is now a healthy adult thriving. Today I am grateful to introduce you to LifeInCheck™ Consumer Drug Take-Back Program.

Why is this important?
The LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back Program is probably one of the most important things I have ever raised awareness for and for many reasons. Do you remember the story I told you about my cousin and how it could have been prevented? Those prescription drugs were not being used. Had they been disposed of at a place like LifeInCheck maybe that situation could have been way different. As a mother of two little ones and an aunt of teenagers, it’s very important that I practice safe storage of drugs in my home. But drugs that I am not using? It’s even more important than those are disposed of. Even if you live with older people who may have a hard time remembering things or get confused disposing of drugs could prevent them from taking something that is not meant for them. LifeInCheck is a great solution. So wanna learn how to use the program?
