Please join us at the Dothan Downtown Library parking lot on Friday, October 26th 2018, from 8:00am – 1:00pm to drop off your unneeded medicines, no questions asked. This take back effort will be held in collaboration with the DEA, Dothan Police Department, and AL Extension office.
For more information and additional take back locations please call 800-951-HELP (4357). You can also follow SpectraCare Health Systems on Facebook for event updates.
We recommend this environmentally safe disposal because flushing medicines can contaminate our waters and threaten our wildlife. Many prescriptions have special disposal needs due to their potent ingredients.
Research shows that keeping leftover medications in the home “just in case” provides a temptation for misuse, a reason for theft, and an overdose hazard for all ages.
