A "Dose of Reality" is a media campaign aimed to provide facts about the opioid epidemic, the importance of safe storage & proper disposal of prescription medications and information to prevent opioid misuse. Each year, CHY partners with local law enforcement to participate in DEA National Prescription Take-Back Day.
About 50,000 young children are seen in emergency rooms each year because they have taken medications while unsupervised.
DEA National Take Back Day provides 2 opportunities each year for Americans to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths by safely disposing of unused and expired medications and keeping these substances out of the wrong hands.
