Host a Medication Take Back Drive

Michigan OPEN is looking for sites interested in partnering with us to host an opioid and medication take-back event in their community on Saturday, April 28, from 10am-2pm.  Michigan OPEN’s most recent event in September was held in eight different communities across the state and resulted in 766 families safely removing a total of 900 pounds of medication, including approximately 17,500 opioids, from their homes.

Take-back events are a great opportunity to serve our patients and our communities. Please consider joining us in this community service effort. Michigan OPEN will provide guidance and direction; we provide sites with a take-back management guide, a budget template and marketing/advertising templates to make your event a success!
