MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A new statewide campaign aims at combating prescription drug abuse.

Count It! Lock It! Drop It! starts on Monday.

Health officials said you can help prevent opioid addiction by counting your pills once every couple of weeks to make sure no one’s taking them.

Lock up your medications and store them in a secure place where others may not think to look.

It’s also a good idea to drop off unused or expired medications for proper disposal at safe drop boxes.
