Its All In Your Hands
EPIC has partnered with a team of students from Southeast Missouri State University to develop the “It’s All in Your Hands – Prevent RX Drug Abuse” project. The goal of this project is to reduce youth abuse of prescription and over the counter medications by educating people about prescription drug abuse and raising awareness of the need for safe disposal of these medications. The students have created informational materials to raise awareness of the problem and to increase safe disposal by promoting the upcoming Prescription Drug Take Back Day as well as local Permanent Prescription Drug Drop Boxes. There is currently a Drop Box at the Jackson City Police Department and one has been ordered for the Cape City Police Department as well.
