This Saturday’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is not just about gathering a bunch of old, unwanted pills in an attempt to top last season’s collection totals (although we hope our efforts help to achieve that end). It’s about making each of our homes a little bit safer. It’s about eliminating a risk that many of us aren’t aware exists. It’s about preventing stories like the ones shared in the clip below.
There are hundreds of Drug Take-Back collection sites across Michigan, and more are being added daily. Find the one closest to you.
Special thanks to Mark Rudolph, Susan Gregory and Andrew Fortunato from Families Against Narcotics for sharing their stories.
