GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., June 1, 2022 – Safe Rx, a company on a mission to fight America’s opioid epidemic and drug abuse with its award-winning locking prescription vial (LPV®), will attend seven conferences through September to educate attendees on the most cost-effective ways to stop prescription drug abuse and misuse.
