When the Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County gives its update to the community on Oct. 24th, it is also hoping to take something away — unwanted prescription medications.

Beth Morris, director of community health partnerships with Columbus Regional Health, says that the community update and forum will also include a drug take back event. You can bring any unwanted medications, either yours or someone else’s, to the event and they will be taken, no questions asked.

Morris says that anyone who brings in a prescription for disposal, will also receive a copy of the book “Dreamland” which explains how the opioid and heroin epidemic came to be.

The community forum will be at The Commons at 6:30 p.m. on the night of Tuesday, Oct. 24th.
