National Pharmaceutical Take-Back Day April 28

Click here for more information including the location of a collection site near you.

For local information, visit the Take Back Your Meds website.  The website includes a Take Back Your Meds handout that explains two key messages: Washington needs an ongoing statewide take-back program and drug companies, not taxpayers, should provide take-back programs!

Medicine take-back programs are important because they are one tool for preventing prescription drug abuse among teenagers.  Please consider publicizing the April 28 event among your colleagues, friends, neighbors and family members.  Locally, Bartell Drugs and Group Health have permanent prescription drug (except narcotics) return programs.
