Benzer Pharmacy partners with PharmaLink on a new Drug Disposal Program for consumers.

RxTakeBack®, the safe, responsible, and compliant disposal solution for patient medication, including narcotic prescription drugs

PharmaLink is proud to partner with Benzer Pharmacy in utilizing their pharmaceutical returns program in conjunction with RxTakeBack®, the safe, responsible, and compliant disposal solution for patient medication, including narcotic prescription drugs.

With specialized systems for all classes of trade, PharmaLink makes the returns process simple so that pharmacists and healthcare providers can focus on delivering healthcare. By partnering with Benzer Pharmacy, the fastest growing independent pharmacy in America, PharmaLink’s RxTakeBack® program provides a complete disposal solution for prescription drugs for Benzer’s customers. Last year, Benzer Pharmacy introduced ‘Dispose My Meds’, a prescription drug take-back program, in partnership with the National Community Pharmacists Association.

“Dispose My Meds drug take-back program, however, was only available for non-controlled medications, but with the addition of the RxTakeBack® program, individuals can safely and conveniently dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired prescriptions, including controlled substances and over-the-counter medications, at no cost,” says Emah Madegwa, Media and PR Manager at Benzer Pharmacy.

Benzer Pharmacy’s aim is to showcase its leadership in protecting the environment and preventing medication misuse by ensuring the safe and proper handling of medications, from dispensing to disposal.

RxTakeBack® was developed in response to the requirements set forth in the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010 and the growing need for U.S. consumers to have a compliant and logical outlet for all types of prescription disposal. RxTakeBack® provides its users with a turn-key solution that includes, an ADA compliant collection kiosk, disposable kiosk liners, complete transportation logistics, and access to a web-based tracking and compliance system that assist users in conforming to DEA and EPA regulatory requirements.

Thierry Beckers, PharmaLink President & COO, was quoted saying, “We developed RxTakeBack® to be a product that helps prevent prescription drug abuse while assisting facilities in navigating and complying with the complex regulatory process.”

The RxTakeBack® medication disposal solution is currently available to DEA Registered Collectors including retail pharmacies, hospitals, narcotic treatment programs, and law enforcement.
