Take Back Videos
The COVID pandemic has impacted us all; over the past year, we have seen an increase in overdose throughout Bucks County. Narcan can save lives. We are pleased to announce that three sites – located in Bensalem, Hilltown and Warwick – will be holding a Narcan Drive-Thru event during Medication Take Back Day on April 24. In addition, for the first time ever, sharps (needles, syringes, lancets and auto injectors) will be collected at these three sites. This means that you will be able to drive up, drop off your unused, unwanted or expired medications and sharps and receive one unit of Narcan while supplies last.
Narcan Drive-Thru EventDr. Bonnie Milas, Professor of Clinical Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, explains how to administer Narcan and what is included in the kits distributed at the Take Back sites in Bensalem, Hilltown and Warwick.
Dr. Lauren Exley, Emergency Department Medical Director at Jefferson Health Northeast, Bucks Hospital, explains how to safely bring your sharps to the Bensalem, Hilltown and Warwick sites on Take Back Day! Sharps include needles, syringes, lancets and auto injectors.
