Pharmacy for Cancer Care
Going through cancer treatment at UVA? The Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Retail Pharmacy is located at the cancer center for patient convenience. Our pharmacists work closely with your providers and patient care coordinators to make sure out-of-pocket costs are affordable.
Drug Take-Back Program
What's the best thing to do with outdated or unwanted medication? Putting drugs in the garbage or flushing them down the toilet has risks. The safest option is to deposit old prescription drugs at a secure, registered location.
UVA offers two locations for Central Virginia residents:
The take-back receptacles are green metal boxes with a drawer at the top. Once you put medications in the drawer and close it, the medications drop into a locked storage box below. Once the box is full, we remove the medications from the box and have them destroyed by an outside processor.
You can deposit drugs at any time, day or night. The two drug take-back boxes stay open in the lobby of the Lee Street pharmacy 24/7.
