Effort Brings Community Awareness to Stop Prescription Drug Misuse and Abuse

PENSACOLA, FL. CDAC Behavioral Healthcare knows that prevention is the key to reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse. Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a great way for all community members to participate in the fight against prescription drug misuse and abuse. In coordination with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office, Walgreens, and CVS, there will be public sites for community members to voluntarily surrender expired, unwanted, and unused prescription drugs and other medications for destruction. For further information on the safe disposal or the prevention of substance abuse, please contact Denise Manassa at 850-434-2724 or go to DEA website at takebackday.dea.gov.
