Saturday, April 30 The DEA has scheduled a second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day that will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Department of Public Works, 21 Cross Street, Salem. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, according to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Each day, approximately 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time, according to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the first event or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs to safely dispose of them.
The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive at the Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church, 171 Zion’s Hill Road, Salem, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Please consider donating blood to help someone have a second chance at life.
