They’re hiding in the backs of medicine cabinets throughout our community: drugs that no one needs, and that could pose a risk to children, teens, adults, and the environment. We will accept prescription and over the counter pills, capsules and patches for humans and pets. We will not accept liquid medications, EpiPens, creams or gels, needles or syringes or lancets, thermometers, IV bags, sprays, vials, inhalers or powders. U-M Division of Pain Research, Anesthesiology and the Ann Arbor Police Department is hosting our 8th medication take-back event on Saturday, October 27 between 10-2PM in the St. Francis School Parking Lot. The event aims to reduce the number of homes that have opioid painkillers on hand, as well as other medicines that shouldn’t be kept around because of the risk of abuse – and shouldn’t be dumped in the trash or down the toilet either. Individuals can bring old, expired, or just unneeded medicines to the St. Francis School parking lot event and drive away knowing they will be properly and safely destroyed.
