WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - United Regional is hosting a “Drug Take Back” in hopes of preventing medication accidents and abuse.

The drop-off will be in the United Regional emergency room’s south parking lot, at 1600 11th St. in Wichita Falls.

During the last Drug Take Back event, over 250 pounds of medications and needles were destroyed.
