A "Dose of Reality" is a media campaign aimed to provide facts about the opioid epidemic, the importance of safe storage & proper disposal of prescription medications and information to prevent opioid misuse. Each year, CHY partners with local law enforcement to participate in DEA National Prescription Take-Back Day. 

About 50,000 young children are seen in emergency rooms each year because they have taken medications while unsupervised.
