Prescription Medicine Abuse is on the Rise –
NuTone® Storage Solutions Safeguard the Home and Family

Hartford, Wis., September 29, 2010 – October is National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month. According to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America™ (CADCA) fact book, prescription drug abuse by teens and young adults in the United States is a serious problem. In fact, statistics from CACDA show one in five teens has abused prescription drugs. Additionally, the Partnership for a Drug Free America™ states that prescription drug abuse prevention starts at home as 70 percent of people who abuse prescription drugs get them from their home, their friends or their family.

In conjuction with National Medicine Abuse Awareness Month, and in response to the alarming amount of teens and young adults accessing and abusing medications most often found in the home, NuTone® offers a complete line of security cabinets to help secure medications in the home.

625N244SNCLAccording to The National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign™, experts agree that one of the most effective ways to curb prescription drug abuse is to safeguard medications. “Because prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse continues to be on the rise, NuTone recognized the need to inform parents and homeowners on a few effective methods to safeguard these items in the home,” says Julie Allongue, marketing manager, Broan-NuTone Storage Solutions.“The new and improved line of Locking Medicine Cabinets, Recessed Security Cabinets and Lock Box options from NuTone are a great solution to safeguard high-risk presciption and over-the-counter medications, while inconspicuously blending into the home environment.”


The NuTone Series of Locking Medicine Cabinets offer an inconspicuous and durable keyed mechanism limiting access to the contents inside. Part of the complete series of metallic finish medicine cabinets, the locking cabinets feature a contemporary frame that is available in oil-rubbed bronze or satin nickel finishes, making it easy to coordinate décor with popular bath and hardware fixtures.


To secure medications in other parts of the home, NuTone also offers a Recessed Security Cabinet that can be installed anywhere in the home where a little peace of mind is needed. Perfect for homeowners who want to maximize their storage space, the NuTone Recessed Security Cabinet is another inconspicuous solution to help safeguard medications. Parents can rest assured their prescription and over-the-counter medications are locked away.

Easy installation allows the cabinets to be located anywhere in the home and can even be installed by the average DIY-er as they fit easily between standard stud distances including in a closet or behind a door. In addition, the cabinet door can easily be covered with paint or wallpaper for enhanced concealment.



For those in need of a smaller option for secure storage, NuTone offers a compact and discreet Lock Box. The Lock Box can be installed within an existing medicine cabinet, kitchen cabinet or storage unit with at least 14 inches of width. This option is perfect for those who want to secure their medications, but who still like easy access for everyday use.
