Drug Take Back Day
The DEA along with state and local law enforcement agencies across the US will be holding another Drug Take Back Day on Saturday April 27th from 10am-2pm.
Prescription drug abuse is a significant problem in this country. 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.
Below is a table showing Take Back locations in our area. The PA State Police at Carlisle across from thehospital is one location plus many of the Giant food stores.
The DEA website www.dea.gov has informational links about teens and drugs and a DEA Resource for parents “Get Smart about Drugs”.
