The 23rd “Operation Medicine Cabinet” drug take-back event at Dosher Memorial Hospital is scheduled for Thursday, October 6, between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Local residents are invited to drop off unwanted and expired prescription medications at the hospital front entrance, where law enforcement then takes what is collected for safe incineration. One of the conveniences of this event is that it is designed so that you can “drive through and drop off,” without having to leave your car.
At Dosher’s last drug drop in April 2021, nearly 700 local households discarded more than 30,000 expired or unwanted narcotic pills and nearly 3,700 milliliters of narcotic liquids.
Dosher welcomes the opportunity to provide this service to local residents. For questions about Operation Medicine Cabinet, call the Dosher office of Marketing and Community Relations at 910-457-3900.
