Drug Take Back Program visits Columbia

Oct 24, 2013

The Drug Take Back Program is collecting prescription drugs today in Columbia. Ryan Worley, Coordinator of the Youth Community Coalition, is in charge of the program. He said unused prescription drugs can sometimes be accessible to and abused by family members if they are not disposed of properly.

“These are not safe to abuse. They are drugs they are powerful, and they should only be taken the way a doctor prescribes them,” Worley said.
