2k23 DEA National Rx Drug Take Back Day ??

10AM ? – 2PM ?

The biennial DEA prescription drug (Rx) Take Back event offers free and anonymous disposal of unneeded medications found in the home. If you haven’t used them, don’t need them, or they’re expired, drop your meds off at a #TakeBackDay collection site near you to ensure they are properly dispose of. This helps to reduce the incidence of Rx drug misuse by removing the access to these drugs from those they weren’t prescribed.

TOMORROW, April 22nd, 10am-2pm, we will be stationed at a collection site at the Northwest Family YMCA, located at 1700 Dennis Kemp Lane NW in Kennesaw, GA

If you can’t make it out to meet us, you can still do your part by insuring that you are properly disposing of Rx drugs in your home with the use of DisposeRx at-home medication disposal packets! Mix the powder in these packets with your medication and water, and it deactivates the medicine making it safe to throw away in the trash or flush down a drain without contaminating the water supply!

If you would like to obtain packets for you and your family, you can text “MEDS” to 85775!

Lastly, as always we want to continue to encourage securely lock away all current medications in the home to remove the access from those they are not intended!
