There are many ways you can help keep your community safe. This month, there's a unique opportunity to help address opioid misuse in your area.
It’s always important to secure prescription medications you may be taking so that others, especially children, can’t use them. When you no longer need the medication, safely disposing of any unused portion is just as important. That helps reduce access to medicines that become dangerous when used in ways other than intended and prescribed. And avoiding misuse helps prevent addiction.
Saturday, October 26 is Prescription Take Back Day. This bi-annual event serves as a reminder to clean out your medicine cabinet and help keep your family and friends safe.
RALI New Hampshire is proud to partner with our partners this Take Back Day to encourage safe disposal of unused Rx medicines. Partners in NH are distributing safe disposal kits, to ensure you can safely dispose of unused medications at home year-round, and lock boxes, to help keep medications you are taking secure.
You can also find a disposal site near you, by visiting https://takebackday.dea.gov/. If you can’t get to a disposal site or you prefer to dispose of medications at home, visit us online at www.ralinh.org to learn about safe disposal methods.
Join us this Saturday to make sure that extra medicines are safely disposed. Working together, we can keep our New Hampshire communities safe, and address our state’s opioid crisis at the same time.
