GET INVOLVED IN THE ARKANSAS PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK

You can now register your agency for the next Arkansas Prescription Drug Take Back event, which has been scheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at participating locations. There are more than 130 permanent drop off sites throughout Arkansas and even more temporary drop off sites participating in the Take Back event. 

The Criminal Justice Institute is honored to be a partner in this important initiative. This event aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.

The Arkansas Take Back website offers an abundance of news and resources about prescription drug abuse along with information about the April 29th event: www.artakeback.org
