[ARCHIVED] Texas Dose of Reality - Drug Take-Back Program

In 2017, about 1 in 7 Texas high school students took opioids without a prescription or differently than how they were prescribed.  Among U.S. youth ages 12 to 17, nearly 60% report that the source of their most recent misuse of prescription pain relievers was a friend or relative. 

Walgreens at 5380 is one nearby location where you can drop off unused or expired medications (never flush them!) They don't take liquids or needles.
