Help Identify Safe Disposal & Take-back Events

This survey opportunity is now closed.

Visit the Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention page on Athena for information and resources related to safe disposal and medicine take-back events.

DSHS’ Washington State Opioid Awareness campaign – Starts with One – launched on January 1, 2018. You’ll see campaign materials roll out across the state through April. Additionally, if you haven’t downloaded the Partner Toolkit, we encourage you to do so here. The Partner Toolkit has a wide range of materials you can use in your own community.

While the campaign focuses on educating about the dangers of opioid misuse and abuse, it also seeks to increase awareness of appropriate use, safe storage, and disposal practices. We’d like your help in identifying safe disposal or medicine take-back events in your community taking place between now and April 30th. 

If you’re aware of any and would like the support of the campaign, please complete the brief survey below by March 1st. This information will allow us to track medicine take-back events across the state and generate coverage of some of these events. Take the survey here
