Mary Hendrickson of GENCO Pharmaceutical Services Speaks Before Senate on the Topic of Drug Take-Back Programs
Date:7/8/2010

Important Issue at Crux of Environment, Drug Regulations, Child/Public Safety and Healthcare Reform

Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) July 8, 2010 -- GENCO Supply Chain Solutions, North America’s second largest and a Global Top 50 third-party logistics provider, today announced that Mary Hendrickson, Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs, GENCO Pharmaceutical Services, spoke on June 30 before the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging during a hearing on drug waste and disposal. Hendrickson’s testimony transcript and video of the hearing are available on the U.S. Senate Web site. Chairman Kohl (D-WI), along with Senators Corker (R-TN), Collins (R-ME) and Casey (D-PA), attended the hearing. The majority of the witnesses asked for changes to the Controlled Substance Act to allow non-DEA registrants the ability to accept controlled substances through take-back programs. The DEA is on record supporting H.R. 1359 which would give the DEA this authority.

Covered in the testimony is the intersection between drug regulations, environmental concerns and the human tragedy associated with overdoses on prescribed drugs found in medicine cabinets, a human health issue that could have implications within broader healthcare reform initiatives. The panel statements included a drug enforcement official who indicated that a nationwide drug take-back initiative is in the planning stages; a parent who lost a son due to the use of an unused prescription medication left in a medicine cabinet; and among others, Stevan Gressitt, Founding Director, Maine Institute for Safe Medicine, Faculty Associate University of Maine, Center on Aging, who discussed Maine’s statewide program allowing consumers to return unused drugs back to the DEA through the U.S. Postal Service – the program has recovered one ton of unused pharmaceuticals since 2007, saving the state $250,000 per year in associated costs.
