Take-Back Day is Saturday
The Holly Springs Police Department will be participating in the National Take Back Initiative Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. This is a collaborative effort with the Drug Enforcement Administration to take back expired/unused prescriptions, over the counter medications and to dispose of them properly. Disposal is anonymous. No syringes/injectables please.
DEA’s Take-Back Day is a White House initiative from the office of National Drug Control Policy, to purge home medicine cabinets of neglected drugs and reduce prescription drug abuse and diversion.
A recent study reported that abuse of prescription drugs is two-and-a-half times more frequent than abuse of cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, and inhalants combined (National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2010). The same study shows the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. This is the third national Take-Back Day.
