ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – If you haven’t heard the message yet, clean out your medicine cabinets.
Another new study is urging parents to go to their medicine cabinets and throw out their old prescriptions.

Researchers at the University of Michigan found that teens who abuse codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone and other prescription opioids that are not medically necessary are at greater risk of addiction by age 35.

A quarter of adolescents surveyed reported lifetime medical use of prescription opioids or nonmedical use of prescription opioids at age 18.
