CVS/pharmacy is hosting a Prescription Drug Take Back event at its Cass Avenue store in Woonsocket. Representatives from the Woonsocket Police Department will be collecting unneeded, unwanted or expired prescription medications. Representatives from the Woonsocket Prevention Coalition will be providing participants with information about the importance of disposing of medications properly. 

The event is being held on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day was established in 2010 by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies across the country. The events are held twice each year, in the spring and fall, at thousands of locations across the U.S. Since its inception, more than 2.8 million pounds of unneeded medications have been collected and destroyed, helping to prevent diversion, misuse and abuse of the drugs.
