The Elliot Helps Manchester Collect Highest Number of Unwanted Drugs on National Drug Take Back Day!


The 20th Annual Drug Take Back Day was a huge success!

Elliot Pharmacy at River’s Edge in Manchester partnered with Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS)-Manchester and Making It Happen to collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs on April 24.

The Manchester Police Department and Elliot Pharmacy at River’s Edge drop-off locations collected a total of 31 boxes of unwanted medications, weighing in at over 1,651 pounds. That’s the largest volume of medications collected among all drop-off locations in the state!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to help reduce the risk of drug misuse in our community.
