National Coalition Holds Prescription Drug Take-back Day in Palm Springs Ahead of Pain Medicine Scientific Meeting
Date:2/18/2012

ity, as a matter of public safety," said C.A.R.E.S. Alliance representative Sherice Mills, Manager, Medical Affairs, Pharmaceuticals for Covidien, which created the coalition. "A successful long-term solution can be found, but it requires collaboration to provide education for consumers and better resources for prescribers and pharmacists."

On the C.A.R.E.S. Alliance's website (www.caresalliance.org), physicians and pharmacists can find tools for prescribing, screening and assessing patients. Patients and their families can also find tips for the safe use and handling of their medications.

According to Charlie Cichon, Executive Director of NADDI, involvement from many different organizations and individuals is needed to address this complex issue. "We believe that collaboration through this and other initiatives will further the nation's progress against the illegal diversion of legitimate prescription medicines, which many people do use appropriately," he said.

Pharmacies throughout the area are participating in the Drug Take-back Day and will be accepting both unused and expired pills. No sharps, liquids or gels will be accepted. A full list of drop-off locations is available at www.caresalliance.org.

About the C.A.R.E.S. Alliance

Launched in September 2010, the C.A.R.E.S. Alliance is a coalition of 10 national patient safety, provider and drug diversion organizations focused on reducing opioid pain medication abuse and increasing responsible prescribing habits. The C.A.R.E.S. Alliance was created by Covidien, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, to ensure the safe use of all medications by collaboratively developing and sharing tools and resources for all stakeholders.
