We are extending National Prescription Drug Take Back Day! Join the North Arundel Health and Wellness Committee as we provide an opportunity to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
According to the DEA, The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
On June 17th, turn in your unused and expired medications for safe disposal at the pharmacy! Visit the health and wellness member tables and learn about resources available to you.
