"Events like this help remove potentially dangerous prescriptions drugs from the community," said Christina Ivazes, substance abuse prevention coordinator with the Placer County Children's System of Care. "We've collected more than 55,000 pounds of medications at take-back events since 2010, and last spring saw our highest numbers ever. This commitment to community wellness and our youth is what makes Placer County great."
