UPMC and Pitt School of Pharmacy Host Drug Take-Back Day
WHY: Abusive use of prescription pain killers and over the counter drugs has been on the rise in recent years. Consumption of unused or expired drugs could have negative consequences for people who take them and improper disposal can be harmful for the environment. Drug Take-Back Days are critical in preventing drug overdose, illicit drug use and water contamination.
