Count It! Lock It! Drop It!® (CLD), a comprehensive community plan for prescription drug misuse prevention, is based in Coffee County, Tenn. The program stems from the Coffee County Anti-Drug Coalition (CCADC), whose mission is to create a safe and drug-free local community.
Now, with support from the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation and the community at large, the initiative is launching a statewide effort to combat the misuse of prescription pain medication.
CLD is focused on community outreach and education to reduce prescription drug misuse and addiction. With Tennessee’s ranking third in the nation in prescribing opioids, it is CLD’s mission to make the community aware of the risks and dangers associated with the prescription drug misuse epidemic.
