April 27, 2018 - Tomorrow is National Prescription Take Back Day. Collection sites will be set up in our area where people can dispose of unused or expired medications. This event provides an opportunity to prevent drug addition and overdose deaths.
According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused prescription drugs. The study also indicates that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
