The Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (Michigan OPEN) partners with organizations across the state to host Medication Take Back Events twice each year. Our fall Take Back Event will take place on Saturday, October 26th, 10am-2pm. This coincides with the DEA National Take Back Day.
Since 2017, we have collected approximately 9,600lbs of pills and collected 172,700 opioid pills during these take back events across Michigan!!
Michigan OPEN aims to be a valuable resource to our partner organizations to help plan, promote, and carry out smooth and successful take back events. Some of the resources and advantages provided by a partnership with Michigan OPEN include:
A step-by-step planning guide
Help to coordinate and compensate your local law enforcement
Webinars hosted by Michigan OPEN staff to provide guidance and a forum for questions
Templates for event signs/flyers
Promotion through our website and radio advertising
