Thu, Sep 11th, 2014

The Police Department is again partnering with the Giant supermarket to collect unwanted and unused prescription drugs on September 27 as part of National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

Drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Giant, 1760 DeKalb Pike.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, according to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Each day, approximately, 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet.
