MedReturn Drop Box Unit at Downey Drug Pharmacy in Anniston
If you have unwanted or expired drugs inside your home and are looking to dispose of them properly, the Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention has partnered with a local Pharmacy to provide a new drop off location. Downey Drug Pharmacy in Anniston has partnered with the Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention to install a “MedReturn Drop Box Unit.”
This drop box is located inside the pharmacy for anyone who wants to get rid of unwanted or expired medications. Although there are drop off locations at local police departments, Prevention Specialist Iesha Crook says this drop off location was created to make people more comfortable with dropping off their medications.
Unlike the National Take Back events that are held twice a year, Crook says this drop box unit will be available for residents to utilize year round. Residents are welcomed to use the MedReturn Dropbox Unit during Downey Drug’s regular business hours.
