    There are 6.8 million people aged 12 and older who have used prescription drugs recreationally. To reduce the chance of prescription drug misuse or abuse within a household, AWARXE recommends disposing of unused, unwanted, or expired drugs in a timely fashion. The ability to find local medication disposal sites with AWARXE’s easy-to-use search tool will simplify this essential part of drug safety., AWARXE has launched a location-based search tool. Visitors who type an address, city, state, or zip code into the website’s new search tool will receive a list and map of the closest medication disposal sites. Law enforcement organizations, civic centers, and pharmacies are the most common sites where prescription drugs can be disposed of in a manner that is safe for family, friends, and the environment.

    Fantastic news – the US Senate, for the second year in a row, has passed AANP’s Naturopathic Week Resolution!  Naturopathic medicine is once again declared to be “safe, affordable, and effective.”

    This year is even sweeter because it’s truly bipartisan…with Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Independent Angus King of Maine joining Democratic Senators Tom Harkin of Iowa and Barbara Mikulski (our lead sponsor once again).

    Special thanks go to Drs. Jaclyn Chasse and Tina Beaudoin, and the members of the New Hampshire Association of Naturopathic Doctors, for their dedicated efforts to get Sen. Ayotte as a cosponsor.Now we can truly celebrate NMW in style!

    Here’s the link to the AANP's NMW page.
