April 2, 2018
Safer LockR is participating in the National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit, the nation’s largest annual gathering of stakeholders who convene to discuss progress and opportunities in the prevention and treatment of the opioid crisis. The 2018 Summit will feature President Bill Clinton, as well as notable spokespeople from every element of the prevention, treatment and recovery community. This year’s summit takes place in Atlanta, Georgia from April 2 through April 5, 2018.
Kim Box, CEO, and Nathan Langley, Co-Founder and Vice President of Business Development, will represent Safer Lock at the summit. The Safer Lock can significantly reduce the chance of accidental access or misuse of powerful pain medications. In 2015, two million Americans had a substance use disorder involving prescription pain medications, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Attacking the opioid epidemic on every front, the summit pulls together a wide range of attendees who possess expertise as clinicians, counselors, social workers, therapists, psychologists, interventionists, physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, advocates, families, and people in recovery, law enforcement personnel, public health and prevention officials, Federal, state, and local officials and lawmakers, education specialists and researchers, treatment center owners and operators and lawyers.
Safer Lock is a patented 4-digit combination locking cap that is sold with the Safer Lock bottle or can retrofit many existing pharmaceutical vials used in pharmacies today. Patients create and set their personal combination from 10,000 possibilities, which can only be changed when it’s on its current, correct combination. Safer Lock will only open when it’s on the correct combination, which keeps non-patients from pilfering medication without detection. Safer Lock of Gatekeeper Innovation, Inc., is headquartered in Sacramento, California. Read the company’s white paper on the opioid epidemic and learn more about the Safer Lock at SaferLockRx.com
