Presque Isle County Drug Take-Back Day: A Community Effort

The most recent Prescription Drug Take-Back Day held in Presque Isle County was a resounding success, thanks to the collaborative efforts of community members, law enforcement, and local organizations. Held twice a year, in April and October, these national events are facilitated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and collaborations such as the Presque Isle County Sheriff's Department and Up North Prevention.

On April 24, the most recent collection date, Presque Isle County residents stepped up to the plate. The Presque Isle County Sheriff’s Department and Up North Prevention joined forces to organize the event, ensuring that residents had a central location to drop off their medications. The event took place at the Rogers City Area Senior Center, emphasizing accessibility and community involvement. A total of 12 pounds of prescription medications were collected because so many community members stepped forward to play a crucial role in this ongoing initiative. Thank you to those that participated, choosing to not flush old medication, potentially harming our water supply and ecosystems, and additionally, keeping medications out of reach of children and away from the wrong hands. Together, we can make a difference, one pill at a time.
