CLARION – To prevent unused prescription and over-the-counter medications from falling into the wrong hands, the Armstrong, Indiana, Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission will hold a Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In partnership with Clarion Borough Police Department and The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, the event is in support of the DEA’s National Drug Take Back Day. AICDAC will also be offering free Naloxone (Narcan) kits at the event. Naloxone is a medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose and is available to anyone.

Items may be brought to the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy located at 100 Liberty Street in Clarion.

All types of prescription and OTC medications will be accepted in the form of capsule, pill, tablet, patch, liquid or cream. Sharpies and syringes will not be accepted due to the potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens.

Participants are encouraged to remove any personal information from bottles. This event is anonymous, and all efforts should be made to protect the anonymity of individuals. No questions or requests for identification will be made.

Call (814) 226-6350 for more information.
