National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

A Message From Katherine

"I’m encouraging families to participate in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 26. As a mother of three boys, I feel it is our responsibility to our children to make sure we remove unused prescription drugs from our homes. A majority of children report that it is easy to get drugs out of their parents’ medicine cabinet, and this is often the first step to addiction. This epidemic affects all of our communities and participating in the National Take Back Initiative is something all of us can do to help keep our kids safe." –Katherine
