 PTA Mission:

 Parent Information: Drug Use warning Signs

 Soon our students will be out of school with idle time on their hands.  If parents are working, children - young and old - spend more time unsupervised, looking for something to do, right or wrong.  Now is the time to get unneeded and unused medications out of your house and out of your medicine cabinet.  Anyone who reads the paper, follows the news online or watches news on TV knows what a problem prescription drug abuse is and how it can be a gateway to heroin and other drugs.  We are losing far too many young people to this horrible epidemic.

 
Given this situation, Bremo Pharmacy is doing its part to get unneeded or unused medications out of people's homes and medicine cabinets.  As a service to the community, we have installed a permanent Drug Take back box in our pharmacy at 2024 Staples Mill Road. 
 
You need not wait for the once a year Drug Take back day.  Our Drug Take back box is available for the public's use anytime our pharmacy is open:  Monday - Friday 9:00am - 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am - 1:00pm.  There is no charge, there is no catch - it is truly a community service to get unneeded and unused medications out of our home and out of the hands of our children - young and old.
