Host a Medication Take Back Event

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, September 30 from 10am-2pm! Michigan OPEN’s most recent event in May was held in six different communities and resulted in 552 families safely removing a total of 422 pounds of medication, including approximately 15,000 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! Please check out the attached document for more details.

Interested? Have questions? Join us on an upcoming conference call! Email to RSVP and receive details on the conference line.

Conference call dates and times are:

Tuesday, August 8 from 3:30-4:30pm

Thursday, August 17 from 9-10am
