National Drug Take-Back-Day
Do you have old prescription pills or medication and not sure how to properly dispose of them? I got just the thing.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on today from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity for those of you who missed the previous events, or who have since accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs. Here’s the perfect way to safely dispose of those medications.
NOTE: THEY WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING LEGAL, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.. THEY WILL *NOT BE ACCEPTING INTRAVENOUS OR INJECTABLE DRUGS. REMOVE LABELS FROM BOTTLES.
In the five previous Take-Back events, DEA in conjunction with our state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners have collected more than 2 million pounds of prescription medications.
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. Today’s event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Troop D in Lake Charles at 805 Main Street.
