)-- According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, 1.9 million Americans have a substance use disorder involving prescription pain relievers. Safer Lock is spreading the word about the importance of locking up medications at CADCA's 27th Annual National Leadership Forum from Feb. 6-9.
The Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America (CADCA) is a non-profit organization working to make communities safe, healthy and drug-free. Over 2,700 participants, including nationally known prevention experts, federal administrators and concerned policymakers, will learn the latest strategies to fight substance abuse at the four-day Forum in Washington, DC.

Safer Lock, a product of Sacramento-based Gatekeeper Innovation, is a four-digit (10,000 possibilities) combination locking cap developed to prevent unauthorized access to prescription medication. Set the combination to your (the patient's) personal preference. Without knowing the combination, no one can open the prescription inside without damaging the bottle itself. The locking cap comes with its own bottle; it also fits a wide variety of prescription bottles.
Safer Lock also helps ensure that young children aren’t accidentally poisoned by powerful medications. Unlike childproof caps, a combination cap cannot be twisted off by a determined toddler. At the same time, Safer Lock has been tested and certified to be easier for seniors to twist open than a childproof cap.
