This event is an opportunity for your community to take their unwanted drugs to a central location for incineration. The Turn-In event is sponsored and spearheaded by the Oregon Medical Association Alliance, CARSA, Oregon Partnership and other drug prevention community groups.
We encourage interested community members and coalitions to join our effort to raise awareness on the danger of prescription drug abuse by adults and teens.
This first-ever statewide Prescription Drug Turn-In Day will take place in over thirty Oregon cities. With prescription drug abuse on the rise in Oregon and across the country, organizers are asking Oregonians to turn in their expired and unwanted drugs while promoting safe storage of prescription drugs through the “Lock Your Meds” campaign, sponsored by the National Family Partnership.
