  • Dozens of Colorado agencies participating in National Drug Take Back Initiative Saturday

28, from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m., the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) and the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) 14 National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day initiative.

Mississippians can help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths by using this safe, convenient, and anonymous means of disposing of unused or expired prescription medications, including the powerful painkillers known as opioids, said DEA-Mississippi Assistant Special Agent in Charge Daniel Comeaux. "Collaborative efforts such as National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day are an excellent reminder of the role we each play in the fight against the opioid epidemic". The president's national health emergency declaration opens certain federal funds to drug treatment groups, among other things.

The police departments will accept unwanted prescription drugs year-round.

The objective of the day is to get unused prescription drugs and pills off the streets and properly disposed of. Needles, sharps, asthma inhalers, and illicit drugs will not be accepted at the drop box.

Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands, which is risky and can lead to tragedy.




Last April, Americans turned in more than 900,000 pounds of prescription drugs.

- The majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained through family and friends. Since then, DEA has disposed of more than 8 million pounds of pharmaceuticals collected at these events.

"There are terrible unintended consequences associated with keeping unused prescription drugs in the home", Attorney General Hunter said.

"Flushing them down the toilet poses potential health concerns".
