LiveWell Fair

Araya Jackson

In the midst of Wellness Week on campus, the LiveWell Fair is happening today from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Russell Union.

One of the many activities going on is the Drug Drop-off.The Office of Alcohol and Other Drugs aims to educate students about the dangers of potential abuse for prescription and other over-the-counter drugs. They also want to provide a safe, convenient and reliable way of disposing of prescription drugs that are no longer needed or expired.

Research shows that college aged students are misusing and abusing prescription drugs that are not prescribed to them at higher rates, especially Adderall and Ritalin. The program wants to reduce the number of unneeded drugs in the community, to prevent misuse and overdose.

You can drop off any unused or unwanted prescription or non-prescription medications, over the counter medications, creams, ointments, lotions, and inhalers, as well as pet medications.
