Local Prevention Groups to Collect Unwanted Meds in Clark, Klicktat Counties

The vast majority of opioid misuse – 75 percent – starts with individuals using medication that wasn’t prescribed for them. Further, the drugs that are most commonly misused by teens and adults frequently come from family and friends’ home medicine cabinets.* To combat this issue, several Southwest Washington community prevention coalitions are holding drug take back events on Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in locations across Clark and Klickitat Counties.
