ENID, Okla. — Integris Bass Baptist Health Center will host a lunch and learn panel discussion and a prescription drug take back program noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday in the northeast conference room of the hospital, 600 S. Monroe.

Residents can bring unused and outdated medication for proper disposal during the event or drop them off during those hours at the Drug Education/Demand Reduction static display vehicle in the Intregis Bass parking lot.

Drug addiction experts and medical professionals will talk about how unused prescription drugs can have devastating effects when not disposed of properly. Topics will include the growing opioid addiction, its roots in prescribed pain medication, laws affecting prescriptions, intervention methods and Integris’ newest treatment facility, Arcadia Trails.

Panelists include Doug Wade, interventionist; Dustin Baylor, M.D.; Traci Cook with Arcadia Trails; and a representative from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.

An RSVP is required for the lunch event and space is limited. Those interested can call (580) 234-6060 or the Integris Healthline at (888) 951-2277 to reserve your space.

Attendees can meet with a registered pharmacist to review medications and create an up-to-date and accurate medication list following the luncheon. Those interested should bring their current medications.
