In 2017, the United States Department of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency due to the opioid crisis. I, like so many Americans, was directly impacted by the crisis. One of my siblings suffered from addiction issues her entire adult life. I saw first hand the devastation to the individual and the family. In that same year, I had an idea for a system that could make a huge dent in the opioid and prescription drug abuse problem in this country.... and no one else was doing it. So, I founded LockedBrands with the goal of developing personal lockbox systems for securing opioids, controlled substances, and personal valuables. I have raised over $1M to date for the company, we successfully launched on Kickstarter, filed patents to protect our technology and launched our 1st generation product, The Pillar. We are now developing the 2nd generation product, the Secure Med Manager, which secures and manages controlled substances so that only the patient gets the meds, and only per the doctor’s prescription.
