ISP and DEA partnering for Drug Take Back Day

Sunday, April 8, 2012

On Saturday, April 28, 2012, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the fourth nationwide "Prescription Drug Take Back" initiative.

The "Take Back" initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft.

Collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs to be disposed of for destruction. This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.

The only restriction is they will not accept new or used needles. This program is intended for liquid and pill medications.

The Drug Take Back events have proven to be a popular and safe method for the public to legally and safely dispose of prescription drugs that are no longer needed or have expired.

As in the past, the drugs may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except the Toll Road Post, on Saturday, April 28, 2012, between 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
