Pottsville, PA: On Saturday April 27, 2013 the Tide Task Force (Pottsville Area School District’s Drug and Alcohol Coalition) in conjunction with the Pottsville Area Police and Drug Enforcement provides the public with another opportunity to prevent drug abuse and theft.
In my opinion, every household should take advantage of this program. You can’t just flush the drugs down the toilet, it taints the water system, maybe poison the water system might be a better description.
We see patients at our office that have in excess of 14 medications that have been prescribed over the past 18 months. A lot of patients tell us they no longer take a few of the medications. This is a good time to go through your parent’s medicine cabinet. Get rid of everything they are not currently taking. Bring the drugs for proper disposal to Martz Hall, Pottsville on April 23 between 10:00 Am and 2:00 PM. The service is free and anonymous. Call 570.621.2966 for more information.
