Throughout 2023, the University of Michigan’s Overdose Prevention Engagement Network (OPEN) began distributing Safe Rx Locking Pill Vials (LPVs) to conference attendees as a way to promote safe storage of medications. It became clear very quickly that there was a need, and demand, from community members and organizations alike for resources like this. To get LPVs into the hands of more people, OPEN started the Safe Storage with Locking Pill Vials program at the end of January 2024. OPEN’s Safe Storage Program has found great success with over 30 applicants in 3 months.
