National Poison Prevention Awareness


Did you know North Carolina has one of the highest overdose death rates in the U.S.? Medications are NOT meant to be shared. A medicine that has benefits for one could be fatal for another. In recognition of National Poison Prevention Awareness, the Senior Center is highlighting a medication take back event conducted by the Mooresville Police Department on March 22, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. held in the Citizen Center located in the same facility as the Senior Center. Please take advantage of this safe means of disposing of drugs. These are drugs that might otherwise end up in our water system, putting young children at risks and increase the likelihood of endangering someone’s life or even causing death. Please bring expired medications, both prescription and over the counter, that you no longer want or use. Feel free to bring medications in their labeled containers, as these will be taken and destroyed as well. For further questions, contact the Mooresville Police Department at 704-658-9016.
