Funeral Homes

Drug Free Communities works with funeral directors to decrease the availability and opportunity of prescription medications being taken from the home when families are away at a loved one's wake or funeral.  Community members need to be aware that they need to protect prescription medications during these difficulty times. 


Funeral Directors can use the "Funeral Director Best Practices for Prescription Safety" document and inform families about prescription drug theft.

Take a look at the "Medication Safety" document for tips on how to keep your medications secure.  Funeral directors can distribute this document to families and provide information about the proper security and disposal of prescription medications.
