Opioid Settlements - Reinvest in Prevention and Diversion

According to the NIH, more people died of overdoses in the United States in 2020 than any other one-year period in our history. This accounts for a 30% increase year-over-year as anxiety and fear over the pandemic led to greater drug abuse and increased rates of addiction. And sadly, deaths too. Legal or illegal, stolen and shared, opioids are responsible for the majority of overdoses in the U.S. today. To protect families and communities from this terrible opioid epidemic, experts suggest common sense solutions including properly locking and securing all medications. This simple step prevents unauthorized access to drugs by individuals; especially minors. McShane’s medical lockboxes are specifically designed for that purpose.

The Simplest Step - Lock Up Your Meds

75 percent of opioid abusers start by using medication that wasn’t prescribed for them—usually obtained from a friend or family member. By locking up dangerous opiates and other medications where they are not readily accessible, this unfortunate trend can be dramatically reduced. McShane's prescription lockbox/medication cabinets are designed to help. 

Keep Out of Reach

Even more alarming, due to the historic prevalence of prescription medications in the home, every day in the US, almost 200 children end up in emergency rooms for medication-related treatment. Having a McShane lockbox in your home to properly secure your prescription drugs could be the single most effective way to protect your children and family.

Our courier company strongly encourages the use of LabLockers. We have been a customer for over 10 years and no other metal box vendor we tried in the past compares to the quality and customer service we get at McShane. Any business in the courier industry, specifically medical samples, should consider LabLockers.
