Guard and Discard

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

In Illinois, prescription pain medication overdose deaths doubled between 2013 and 2016. Together we can stop it. The Guard and Discard Program encourages residents to safely store prescription pain medications in a secure location out of sight and to use them only as directed. Safely discard unused or expired medications through take back programs.
