National Drug Take-Back Day is coming around on Saturday October 26th, once again it is up to us to keep our community healthy and safe. There are many in our community who need help battling substance abuse, alcohol abuse, and mental health issues. Often those who abuse prescription pills and alcohol get these substances from family or friends. It is important to understand the grave risk that comes with sharing medicine, intentionally or otherwise, with others. We at RxSafe Marin encourage you to come out if you haven’t dropped off your unused or unneeded prescriptions (liquids and needles are not accepted at many sites) to one of the many locations around Marin County that are accepting anonymous drop-offs (pills should be stored in small paper bags and can be dropped off from 10am – 2pm).
