Drug Take Back Day Featuring Narcan and CPR Training
Northwest Indiana Information Sharing and Security Alliance: Opioid Epidemic Response Team
Drug Take-Back Day is a national day in which communities are allowed to dispose of unused, unwanted, and expired drugs. Rather than allowing these potentially dangerous drugs fall into the wrong hands, the Northwest Indiana Information Sharing and Security Alliance (NIISSA) Opioid Epidemic Response Team, in partnership with the North Township Trustee Office and Munster Police Department, is hosting a summer Drug Take-Back Day. NIISSA works to resist the impact of all hazards in NWI as well as help the region recover rapidly when impacted, and secure the protection of critical infrastructure. This free event will give Lake County residents the opportunity to dispose of drugs. The first 50 attendees shall receive gift cards and all attendees shall receive a Deterra drug disposable pouch.
In addition to disposing of your unused, unwanted, and expired drugs, NARCAN and CPR Training shall be held from 11 AM to 12 PM. This training is available to the first 100 people who RSVP for the training on eventbright.com under the Opioid Epidemic Response Team. This session includes guest speakers from United Way, Recovery Works, Regional Health Systems, Franciscan Health, 211, and the GateWay Foundation.. Our focus is to promote a safe household by providing community based resources. This free event will take place Friday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wicker Memorial Park Clubhouse, located at 8554 Indianapolis Boulevard Highland, IN 46322.
