An Operation Medicine Cabinet Collection Event is being planned for April 28, 2012 at locations throughout Southern Nevada. Detailed location information is coming soon.

OMC II and Great Success!

>> Tuesday, August 17, 2010

In February, the very first Operation Medicine Cabinet was presented in Las Vegas. The successful event yielded 287 lbs. of prescription and over-the-counter drugs, meaning less in home medicine cabinets and potentially out of the hands of children and teens. On Saturday, a second Operation Medicine Cabinet collection event was held, with nearly 800 lbs. of drugs collected in just a few hours. The demand for home medication safes, generously donated by RX DrugSafe™ and given away for free to the first 25 families dropping off drugs, created a line at the opening of the event.

Thank you to all of the Las Vegas area residents who came out and dropped off their drugs and medications in support of OMC.

Media buzz around the event was tremendous, with most of the Las Vegas area television stations reporting on the event. In total, more than 55 news segments aired in advance, on the day of, and following the event. We are grateful for their airtime to spread the word about our important event.

The success of the event would not have been realized without the diligent efforts of USN’s Dr. Paul Oesterman, the members of the Drug Abuse Awareness Team, Det. Bruce Gentner and his team from the LVMPD, USN’s marketing team, The Ferraro Group and the support of Operation Medicine Cabinet partners: Pain in the Drain, Clark County Coroner, Southern Nevada Health District, Narcotics Education Foundation of Nevada, RX DrugSafe, Drug Enforcement Administration and 8 News Now.

Below are some photos from the event.

In support of our effors to curb drug misuse and abuse in Southern Nevada, RX DrugSafe has donated 25 home medicine safes that utilize high-tech fingerprint technology to make storing potentially dangerous medications at home simpler and more secure. The first 25 people with children or teens who drop off prescription and over-the-counter drugs at Operation Medicine Cabinet on Aug. 14 will receive a free safe, valued at more than $200. All others will receive a $100 off coupon for the purchase of a safe.
