Owens Pharmacy Installs MedSafe medication disposal kiosks provided by NoRxAbuse in 5 of its locations, bringing additional convenient and safe medication disposal options to Redding, Anderson, and Weaverville.

Redding, CA, November 17, 2017 — Owens pharmacy has joined the fight to prevent opiate abuse in the communities it serves. We are proud to announce we have partnered with NoRxAbuse, a local non-profit public benefit organization whose mission is to improve patient safety and to prevent prescription drug abuse by providing tools to healthcare professionals, by increasing public awareness, and by developing viable solutions for local communities. NoRxAbuse, in cooperation with California Healthcare Foundation, donated 5 MedSafe drug disposal kiosks to encourage patients to safely dispose of unused drugs.

Andrew Deckert, MD, Health Officer, says “Shasta HHSA—Public Health lauds the efforts of Owens Healthcare and NoRxAbuse to provide drop-boxes because most people who report abuse of prescription medicine are getting it from friends, family and acquaintances, which makes proper disposal of unused medications a crucial part of preventing accidental or intentional misuse.” MedSafe disposal kiosks provide a convenient and safe way to dispose of expired or unused medications.

The MedSafe disposal kiosks provided by NoRxAbuse are located in Redding at:

Owens Pharmacy #1
2025 Court Street, Suite A – open M-F 9am-6pm and on Saturday 9am-1pm
Owens Pharmacy #2

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
