CHASCo Prevention Spotlight: April

Our Prevention Spotlight for April is UT Chattanooga for their continued participation in the National Drug Take Back Event.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. Every year, UT Chattanooga is partnering to help students, staff and community members return hundreds of pounds of prescription drugs that otherwise could end up with a person they were not prescribed for or contaminating our water supply.

This is a great way to collaborate with your local alcohol and drug community coalition on an event that is supported with national resources. If you would like more information about how to get involved or how different campuses have engaged with this activity, let me know.
