Keep Eye on Prescription Drugs During Holiday Season

A Hoosier drug counselor says keep a sharp eye on your medicine cabinet this holiday season.

Scott Watson of Heartland Intervention says drug abusers aren‘t above stealing prescription medication from the medicine cabinets of friends or acquaintances while visiting their homes.

Watson adds that it‘s not uncommon for folks to turn to drugs if they‘re depressed during the holidays.

He says be careful about who you let into your home.

The latest figures show more Americans die from prescription drug abuse than cocaine and heroin combined in addition to auto accidents.
