WSHA + HCA Collaborative: Take Back Day
October 12, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
The Next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is October 29, 2022
Opioid misuse continues to be a serious national public health issue with nearly 71,000 drug overdose deaths in 2019 involved an opioid. Most people who misuse prescription drugs get them from family, friends and/or acquaintances. One key comprehensive strategy to reduce opioid misuse is to support national and state effort in reducing opioid misuse.
