Prescription Take-Back Day will be held this Saturday, April 26th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mount Kisco Police Department. Many thanks to the Mount Kisco Partners in Prevention, a project of the Mount Kisco Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Council.
Did you know that medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning? Just as disturbing, are the alarmingly high rates of prescription drug abuse among teens. A National study, conducted last year by The Partnership at Drugfree.org and the MetLife Foundation, found that 49% of teens who misuse or abuse prescription medicines get them from a family member or friend. More often than not, these drugs are found in our medicine cabinets.
This year’s U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) National Prescription Take-Back Day will be held this Saturday, April 26th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please do your part in keeping our youth stay alcohol and drug free.
