National RX Drug Take Back Day
October 29, 2022
The Minnesota Grocers Association is pleased to join in a statewide awareness program partnership with Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) of Minnesota for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 29, 2022. This program takes forward steps in preventing substance misuse and addiction in our communities.
Now, more than ever, it is critical that we take steps to prevent substance misuse and addiction, starting in our own homes. Thanks to RALI, the Minnesota Grocers Association, though its members, will be distributing free disposal pouches as part of our Drug Disposal Awareness Program to help people properly dispose of any unwanted or expired medications. This is a critically important effort to help our communities address the opioid crisis. You can pick up a free medication disposal pouch at many of your local grocery stores. These pouches are an easy way to safely dispose of unused medicines – deactivate medication in a safe, convenient, and effective manner.
