Join the fight – prevent prescription drug abuse
Unused and expired drugs too often get in the wrong hands. Every year, these powerful medications cost millions of lives and billions in wasted health care dollars. Regence and Blues plans around the country are joining the national effort to prevent and end prescription drug abuse. Working together, we can end this epidemic that claims the lives of 44 Americans every single day.
Please encourage your colleagues, friends and family to join in the effort to protect our families and communities by clearing your home of potentially dangerous unused and expired prescription drugs. Take action to rid your home of prescription drugs on Saturday, Sept. 26 as part of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Visit www.dea.gov to find drop off locations in your area.
