Prescription Drug Take Back Event

EGeneva County Sheriff's Office and SpectraCare Health Systems Partner To Host Prescription Drug Take Back Event On Thursday, February 11th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Geneva County Sheriff's Office and SpectraCare Health Systems will give the public an opportunity to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to Malvern Senior Center located at 223 Church Street in Malvern. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines -- flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash -- both pose potential safety and health hazards. For more information, call SpectraCare Health Systems Prevention Services at (334)673-2143.
