The next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday, April 26. On this day, people are encouraged to turn in unused or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal. Typically, this is hosted by local law enforcement, and your chapter can spread the word about the event. To check if there's a collection site near you, click here.
MADD recently released research which says that teens whose parents tell them that underage drinking is completely unacceptable are 80% less likely to drink than teens who receive any other message. As April is Alcohol Awareness Month, MADD's PowerTalk 21 offers 21 days of activities calling attention to the importance of the drinking age of 21. For more information, please click here.
