Medication Take Back Event - Commerce
Time & Location
About the Event
Community opioid and medication take back events provide a safe process for disposing of unused medications while protecting our communities, children and environment. LACC hosts biannual take back events, once in the spring and once in the fall to coincide with the school year. At LACC, we believe that medication take back events provide a unique opportunity to educate the people in your community about opioids, and more importantly how to safely use, store, and dispose of these medications. As we know from previous research, many people will not dispose of their medications otherwise, increasing the potential that they are diverted into our community and waterways. Increasing safe and convenient opportunities for community members to dispose of their unused and leftover medications is essential for preventing opioid abuse before it begins. Take back events are a great opportunity for community organizations and passionate individuals to come together to make a difference in their local community.
