Medication Take Back Event

The Coalition for Urban Youth and Family Development has partnered with The Northwest Activities Center, OPEN Michigan, the DEA, and the Detroit Police Department to collect unused medications. We can protect children form accidental poisoning by disposing of unused and expired medications.

As we know from previous research, many people will not dispose of their medications otherwise, increasing the potential that they are diverted into our community and waterways. Increasing safe and convenient opportunities for community members to dispose of their unused and leftover medications is essential for preventing opioid abuse before it begins. Take back events are a great opportunity for community organizations and passionate individuals to come together to make a difference in their local community.
