We will be partnering with Kroger in White House on April 30th from 10am-2am for the National Prescription Drug TakeBack Day by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
This will be an opportunity for the public to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs for safe disposal.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Prescription drugs are being misused and abused at alarming rates in the United States. More Americans currently abuse prescription drugs than the number of those using cocaine, hallucinogens, and heroin COMBINED. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.
