Boozman Encourages Arkansans to Dispose of Unneeded and Unused Prescription Drugs

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) encourages Arkansans to participate in Arkansas Take Back on Saturday, April 29 to get expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs out of their homes.

“Drug take-back programs are an important tool to combat prescription drug abuse. I’m proud of the ongoing efforts across our state to get unneeded and unused prescription drugs out of our homes. Arkansas Take Back is making a big difference and helping save lives,” Boozman said.

Arkansas Take Back launched in 2010 to break the cycle of addiction by collecting unneeded and unused prescription medications. Thanks to this initiative, 105 tons of unwanted medication estimated at more than 290 million pills have been removed from Arkansas homes.

Boozman has been a leader in the fight against prescription drug abuse, helping secure a $3.9 million grant awarded to Arkansas last week to help combat opioid addiction in the state.
