Noah's House and Gracie's Place along with Chambers' Apothecary want to help bring awareness to the community about the Franklin County Prescription Drug Take-Back Program April 27th 2019.
You can take any of the following listed items in the post to the permanent drop off boxes listed at the bottom of this post.
The Franklin County PA drug take-back program is focused on alleviating the health and safety concerns from the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs.
Many young people who abuse prescription drugs take them from medicine cabinets.
Why you should properly dispose of unwanted prescriptions:
Prescription drugs involved in overdoses are almost all originally prescribed by physicians
In the past 10 years, prescription drug abuse has quadrupled; it now results in more deaths than all illicit street drugs combined
How to prepare items for disposal:
All pharmaceutical drugs to be disposed of must be placed in a sealed container such as the original bottle or zip-lock bag.
Liquid pharmaceuticals should remain in the original container. Personal information should be removed or marked out with a permanent marker.
You can dispose of:
Prescription and over-the-counter solid medications
Tablets and capsules.
Needles and Sharps all locations except for PSP
You may not drop off:
Compressed cylinders or aerosols (e.g., asthma inhalers)
