Drug Take-Back Day a way to get rid of medications

TPD to participate in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

The National Prescription Drug Take Back program offers more than 5,000 collection sites around the nation to help people get rid of risky, expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous - no questions asked.

Saturday, Oct. 28, is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The event is an effort to rid homes of potentially risky expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. [We have] no problem with that.

Those unable to participate on National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day can anonymously surrender prescription drugs at any MSP post from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. "Storing potentially unsafe drugs in a secure location and disposing of them promptly after use will eliminate the number of people improperly using these substances". "All of that can eventually get back into the water system and [by doing] this it'll be disposed of properly". According to the attorney general's office, since the program began in 2010, more than 58 tons of unwanted meds have been collected and destroyed statewide.

Medicines left in home cabinets can lead to misuse and abuse of the drugs.

Prescription opioid overdoses were involved in the deaths of 550 South Carolinians in 2016, underscoring the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

The Juenau Police Department states that people can dispose of prescription (controlled and non-controlled) and over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, non-aerosol sprays, creams, vials and pet medications.

For more information, or to find the drop off site closest to you, visit the DEA's website, takebackday.dea.gov, and click on the collection site locator. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 33,000 fatal opioid overdoses in 2015 - the most ever recorded.

In an effort to remove and dispose prescription drugs from households, local law enforcement agencies will host a "Drug Take Back" event Saturday as part of the national effort.

These collection events were inspired by an increasing need to prevent prescription drug abuse at home, as well as to reduce the public safety and environmental effects of improper disposal.
