Novant Health to participate in National Drug Take Back Day

Published 12:00 am Saturday, April 28, 2018

Novant Health will participate today in National Drug Take-Back Day with a number of drop-off locations available.

Over half of individuals who misuse pain relievers, and the majority of teenagers misusing prescription drugs, get the prescription from a friend or relative. Not only is it unlawful for controlled substance prescriptions to be transferred to any person other than the patient for whom it was prescribed, but doing so may cause others harm.

Community members are encouraged to drop off unused or expired prescription medications at one of the participating Novant Health Pharmacy locations today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.:

Salisbury, 911 W. Henderson St., Suite L20
Winston-Salem, 255 Charlois Boulevard and 3333 Silas Creek Parkway
Charlotte, 200 Hawthorne Lane
Bolivia, 240 Hospital Drive
