National Rx Take Back Day – Kennesaw

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! Also, talk to your teen about the harms of medication misuse and the risks of opioid abuse! All it takes is one conversation to positively influence their decision to refrain from using and misusing drugs!
