LCAHY & THY Assist Beaufort County Sheriff's Office at National DEA Rx Take Back Day

The DEA Rx event was co-sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office, LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth (LCAHY), and BCADAD. An informational table was staffed by LCAHY Board Members, the LCAHY Consultant, and the Substance Abuse Agency CIA. Resources included opioid brochures and fentanyl fact cards along with LCAHY and BCADAD information brochures. A member of LACHY’s Youth Coalition, Teens for Healthy Youth, provided community members who dropped off unused medications with LCAHY’s Year-Round Rx Drop Box Fact Card. Approximately, 20 cars came through during Rx Take Back Day. This activity is part of LCAHY’s 12-month strategic action plan to prevent and reduce access of medicine misuse by our youth and to educate our community about the dangers of misuse of medications including opioids and fentanyl-laced drugs.

LCAHY provided resources at an informational table during the event.

LCAHY’s Fentanyl Fact Card in English and Spanish was available at the informational table.
