Riesbeck’s hosting drug take back day

October 20, 2013
By MOLLIE WARNER - Times Leader Staff Writer , Times Leader

ON SATURDAY, Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Riesbeck's Pharmacies and Cardinal Health will be participating in National Drug Take Back Day, organized by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Local law enforcement will also assist with the event. This is an opportunity for the public to safely dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs. Drugs can be brought to any Riesbeck's Pharmacy location, including Bridgeport, Cambridge, Shadyside, St. Clairsville, South Zanesville, and Wintersville. No questions will be asked, and the service is free and anonymous. Liquids, syringes, and aerosols will not be accepted. This service is meant to help prevent prescription drug abuse, as drugs left abandoned in a medicine cabinet can be stolen or used illegally by people other than who the drugs were prescribed for.
