The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) Indiana
is a diverse coalition of business and community leaders who are boosting the fight against Indiana’s opioid epidemic. Together, we can keep Hoosiers safe from the threat of addiction.
The fatal drug overdose rate in Indiana has quadrupled since 1999. In 2016 alone, more than Hoosiers lost their lives to fatal drug overdoses – more than half of those related to opioids.
The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) Indiana is working alongside state leaders to combat this problem.
RALI Indiana will help those facing addiction in urban and rural communities, educate Hoosiers about the importance of safe disposal of unused Rx medication, and help Indiana employers de-stigmatize addiction and improve the health of Indiana's workforce.

SAFE USE & DISPOSAL
Everyone can play a role in helping prevent addiction and
prescription drug misuse by safely using, storing and
disposing of prescription medications.
Always talk to your doctor about how to use a prescription medication before taking it.
Be sure to follow dosing recommendations
Don't mix medications without first checking with your doctor. Never mix prescription opioids with alcohol.
Don’t take someone else’s medication.
Always keep prescription medications in a locked or secure place– and always out of the reach of children.
Have a family conversation about the dangers of misusing prescription medication.
Never share medications with family members.
Once you are finished using a prescription medication as directed by a medical professional, you should safely dispose of it rather than keep it in your medicine cabinet for future use.
There are several ways to easily and safely dispose of unused medications right at home. Learn more below.
