Prescription Drug Take Back Day Oct. 27th
National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, scheduled for Saturday, October 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Washington Township Police Department, addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA's Take Back Day provides an opportunity for all of us to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. Click on the link above for more information and more drop-off locations.
