the devastating impact prescription drug abuse and misuse has on communities throughout the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, prescription drug overdoses killed seven Floridians per day in 2009. The C.A.R.E.S. Alliance and NADDI believe that national, state and local cooperation is critical in bending the curve of abuse in Florida and across the country.  

"We all play a role in combating abuse and misuse and improving patient and public safety," said the C.A.R.E.S. Alliance representative Herbert Neuman, M.D., Vice President of Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer – Pharmaceuticals for Covidien. "A successful long-term solution can be found, but only through collaboration with groups like NADDI, more focused community education and better resources for prescribers and pharmacists."

We believe that collaboration through this initiative and others will further our progress against illegal diversion of legitimate, prescription medicines."

On August 27, through a unique partnership, more than 70 pharmacies and law enforcement offices throughout Florida will participate in the Drug Take Back Day and will be accepting unused medications.
