Contact: Lisa M. Carcifero – 766-3332
There will be a Community Prescription Drug Drop Off event taking place on Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Residents are encouraged to visit CVS/pharmacy at 1054 Cass Ave. in Woonsocket from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM to properly dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medications.
This event is being held as a partnership between the Drug Enforcement Agency, CVS Health, the Woonsocket Prevention Coalition and the Woonsocket Police Department.
This method of medicine disposal is a safe and effective way to remove expired or unused medicines from the home and reduce the chance that they may get into the hands of youth and others who should not have access, this Prescription Drop Off event is being offered as an addition to the drop box located 24/7 in the Woonsocket Police Department lobby. Resource materials on a number of public health topics, as well as treatment referrals will also be available at that time.
For more information, please contact Lisa at the Woonsocket Prevention Coalition, (401) 766-3332.
