What's lurking in your medicine cabinet? This is a FREE chance to get opioid pain medications and other unneeded medications out of the house. They’re hiding in the backs of medicine cabinets throughout our community: drugs that no one needs, and that could pose a risk to children, teens, adults and the environment.

 

Residents of Washtenaw County can bring old, expired or just unneeded medicines to the Pioneer High School parking lot and drive away knowing they will be properly and safely destroyed.

 

U-M Division of Pain Research, Anesthesiology and the Ann Arbor Police Department is hosting our 6th medication take-back event on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 10:00am - 2:00pm in the Pioneer High School parking lot. The event aims to reduce the number of homes that have opioid painkillers on hand, as well as other medicines that shouldn’t be kept around because of the risk of abuse – and shouldn’t be dumped in the trash or down the toilet either.

Prescription and over the counter pills, capsules and patches for humans and pets are accepted. Not accepted are liquid medications, EpiPens, creams or gels, needles or syringes or lancets, thermometers, IV bags, sprays, vials, inhalers or powders.
