Save a Star Program

The Save A Star Drug Awareness Foundation was founded in Highland Park, Illinois by David and Gail Katz and their daughter, Melissa Katz Gold, following the death of David and Gail’s 25 year old son, Daniel, from an overdose of prescription drug medication in June, 2007.  Daniel had battled addiction for several years prior to his death.  His addiction began when he started experimenting with cigarettes, alcohol and then marijuana.   The recreational use of these substances can often lead to experimentation with pharmaceutical medications, a practice that is becoming increasingly popular among our nation’s youth.  The Save A Star Drug Awareness Foundation was created to educate the public about the dangers and consequences of prescription drug abuse and addiction, and to provide tangible methods to remove unwanted and unused medications from America’s homes. The Park Ridge Police Department now offers a 24 hour medication take back program. Accepted items listed below. Restrictions apply.
