Alzheimer’s Association program set
for Sept. 10 
 Canadian Valley Technology Center will host an
educational program by the Alzheimer’s Association
Monday, September 10, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in
Building 200, Room 4.
 The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often
dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If you or
someone you know is experiencing memory loss or
behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early
detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy,
enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future.
Attend this training to learn the 10 Warning Signs of
Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality
and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s
in America. Hear people who have the disease and
learn how to recognize signs in yourself and others.
 This program is sponsored by Brookdale Senior
Living Solutions, Lifeline Home Health and Hospice,
Physician Housecalls, and Physician’s Choice
Hospice. Admission is free, but space is limited.
Please RSVP by email at:
or by calling (405) 274-0530.

International Prescription Overdose Awareness Day
 The Red Rock PFS
(Partnership for Success)
Program would like
the community to be
aware of the upcoming
International Prescription
(Rx) Overdose Awareness Day on Friday, August 31, 2018. The International Rx
Overdose Awareness Day was started by the Salvation Army in Australia in 2001
to mourn publicly the loss of loved ones without feeling the guilt or shame. This
year’s theme is “Time to Remember. Time to Act.”
 According to 2017 World Drug Report, The United States accounts for
approximately one quarter of the estimated number of drug-related deaths
worldwide, including overdose deaths, which continue to rise. Mostly driven by
opioids, overdose deaths in the United States more than tripled during the period
of 1999-2015, from 16,849 to 52,404 annually.
 In honor of International Rx Overdose Awareness Day, the silver badge is the
universal symbol of awareness of overdose and its effects. Wearing silver can
signify the loss of someone cherished or demonstrate support to those with a
burden of grief.
 One way to help decrease prescription overdose is to properly dispose of your
unwanted or expired pain medications through the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics
(OBN) drop boxes. There are now MedSafe Disposal Boxes in the Grady County
pharmacies listed below to utilize as well. The drop boxes are located at the
following locations: Grady County Sheriff’s Office, 302 N. 3rd; Chickasha Police
Department, 2001 W. Iowa; Chickasha Clinic Pharmacy, 2224 W. Iowa; Grand
Care Pharmacy, 2103 W. Iowa; or Liberty Drug, 315 W. Chickasha.
Pharmacist to customer: “Sir, please understand, to
buy an anti-depression pill you need a proper pre-
scription ... Simply showing marriage certificate and
wife’s picture is not enough !
