Help Stop A Growing Problem

National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day- No Questions Asked

Prescription pill abuse is the number one drug problem in Western New York.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has labeled prescription drug abuse a "national epidemic."

Now, there's a way for you to help.  

In conjunction with Kids Escaping Drugs and multiple other sponsors, there will be a Prescription Drug Drop Off day on September 29th around Western New York and the nation.  

"We urge everyone to check your medicine cabinet today, and drop off on Sept 29," said a Kids Escaping Drugs representative.  "Help keep unneeded, unwanted medications out our children's hands."

The key to the even is that there are no questions asked.  Once the prescription drugs are dropped off, that's it.  Literally no questions asked.  

The drug drop off accepts all prescription and over-the-counter medications 

There are drop off locations across every county in Western New York.  For a full list of locations, visit the dropoff's website. 

Help spread the word and let's take this problem down.  Remember, National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day- September 29th.
