National Prescription Take Back Event
On Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, Community Preventin Coalition will team up with City of South Tucson law enforcement to host the next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Please bring your expired/unused medications for safe disposal!
Why Should I Be Concerned About Safe Disposal of Medicines?
Prescription medications play an important role in the health of millions of Americans. However, expired medications or unused drugs often stay in the back of cabinets for months or even years. These expired drugs can pose significant health hazards to toddlers, teens, and even family pets who may inadvertently consume medications. Some medications are so potent that even one dose could be fatal if accidentally ingested.
