Lockbox Request

More than 60,000 young children end up in emergency rooms each year because they got into medicines while their caregiver wasn’t looking. Every day in the United States, an average of 2,000 teenagers use prescription drugs without a doctor’s guidance for the first time.

Safeguard medicine in your home and take extra precautions with:

  • Pain Pills
  • Anxiety Medicine
  • Insulin Syringes
  • Anti-Depressants
  • Sleeping Pills
  • ADHD Medicine
  • Other Strong Medicine

Lockboxes are just one simple way to lock up your medications. SCPC is honored to provide community members with stationary lockboxes that will assist in the efforts to reduce youth substance abuse among our youth. Contact SCPC today to see how you can receive a FREE pill pod lockbox. Lockboxes available while supplies last.

Narcan Training

Naloxone (or Narcan) is a proven tool in the battle against drug misuse and overdose death. When too much of an opioid medication is taken, it can slow breathing to a dangerously low rate. When breathing slows too much, overdose death can occur. Naloxone can reverse this potentially fatal situation by allowing the person to breathe normally again temporarily (30-90 minutes). An individual can fall back into an overdose situation after that time if they have a long-acting medication or substance in their system. Naloxone is not a “cure” but is only intended to provide time for emergency medical services to arrive.

Naloxone is not a dangerous medicine. However, proper training is required by law. Any time an overdose is suspected, first responders should be notified by calling 911 immediately and stay with the patient until first responders arrive. It is important to know that some patients may awake disoriented or agitated after receiving naloxone. This is a good sign, but calling 911 is still very important to help the person survive.
