ENDING THE OPIOID CRISIS

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Getting rid of medications you no longer use will eliminate the risk of prescription and over-the-counter medications getting into the hands of children and family members struggling with addiction.

Prescription drug take-back boxes ensure these medications are disposed of in a safe, environmentally-friendly manner.
