National Prescription Drug Take Back Day - DEA
Don't let your medications fall into the wrong hands!
Take part in the DEA's National Take Back Day on Saturday, April 27th. Bring your unwanted, unused, or expired prescription medications and dispose of them safely. An official prescription medication drop box has been placed at the front entrance of the Beaver County Public Safety Facility and at Beaver County Sheriff's Office Milford Sub-Station.
"The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths." -dea.gov
Of course, you never have to wait for a specific day to dispose of your unwanted, unused, or expired precription medications as you can always bring them to the Drop Box at anytime day or night.
"The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet." -dea.gov
"Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That's dangerous and often tragic. That's why it was great to see thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in - safely and anonymously - a record amount of prescription drugs." -dea.gov
