October 26 is National Drug Take-Back Day

Though the King County Board of Health passed a secure medicine return regulation earlier this year, the program is not yet up and running.  In Seattle, Group Health pharmacies and some Bartell Drugs Pharmacies serve as temporary medicine drop-off places.  On October 26, the DEA is offering one more way to get rid of unused and unwanted medicines from households.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
Saturday, October 26, 2013
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
All Seattle Police precincts

Help publicize the event!
The WA Take Back Your Meds Coalition website includes several promotional materials that can be distributed at workplaces, public places like libraries and community centers, and other places where people will read them.  Share the information with family and friends!

Ridding homes of unused and unwanted medications is one way that we can prevent youth medicine abuse.
