Drug Take Back This Saturday
Tue, Apr 25th, 2017
A Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be held this Saturday in Montgomery County.
Unused and unneeded drugs can be disposed of at police departments throughout Montgomery County, including the Whitpain Police Department, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Presciption tablets and capsules, over-the-counter tablets and capsules, liquid medications, inhalers and pet medications can be disposed of in the lobby of the Police Department. Intravenous medicines, injectable solutions and needles cannot be accepted.
The path to addiction and overdose often begins, research shows, with a young person taking pills from a home medicine cabinet, not seeing the harm in trying "one little pill." To reduce the availability of those drugs and keep them out of reach for abuse, the Prescription Drug Disposal Program was started in 2010. Since the program began, more than 28,000 pounds of medicines have been collected and destroyed.
