Fall 2021 Take Back Event a Success!

Nov 5, 2021

Michigan OPEN hosted its fall Take Back Event on Saturday, October 23th with 40 sites participating across the state.

39,420 opioids and 2,032 lbs. of unwanted medications were collected, highlighting the need for take back events even during a pandemic. 

To keep contact to minimum, many sites provided drive-thru medication disposal.

To date, we have held eight statewide take back events and collected 22,647 lbs. of medications and reached over 46 counties in Michigan!

We are grateful to all of our partners for making this fall’s event a success. If you are interested in hosting a site in your community for the fall 2022 Take Back Event, please fill out the Event Interest Form.
