The DEA’s next Prescription Drug Take Back Day is October 27, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
In an effort to reduce the risk of misuse or accidental exposure to medications, including opioids and other prescriptions, New Hanover Regional Medical Center is scheduled to have a free medication disposal event throughout 6 counties, with 17 drop-off locations.
Pender County will have 4 drop-off locations for the event:
1. Pender Memorial Hospital
2. Island Family Medicine
3. Village Pharmacy of Hampstead, Inc.
4. Black River Health Services (Maple Hill)
