DON’T HANG ON TO MEDS…
Prescription drug take back prevents prescription misuse, accidental poisoning, overdose and suicide.
- Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning.
- Nearly 4 out of 5 people who start using heroin start with inappropriate use of prescriptions.
- If you have stopped taking a prescription or it is expired, please be safe and dispose.
Take back programs protect the environment.
- Flushed or trashed medicines pollute waters and land.
