Drug Take Back Day is Saturday

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in partnership with the Vermont State Police, Sheriff’s Departments and Police Departments throughout Vermont, will hold its fourteenth National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 28th, 2017. Vermont Attorney General TJ Donovan recommends that all members of the public safeguard and properly dispose of unused, unneeded, or expired drugs at National Take Back Day. This is an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.Medicines that sit in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—pose safety and health hazards.Last April, Americans turned in 450 tons (900,386 lbs.) of prescription drugs at almost 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 13 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 8.1 million pounds—about 4,000 tons—of pills.Drug Take Back Day is a free and anonymous service. No questions will be asked. Tablets, capsules, and all other solid dosage forms will be collected. Intravenous solutions, injectable, and syringes will not be accepted. Locations of collections sites around the state can be found by going to www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/(link is external) and entering Vermont or a zip code. All sites will be open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.Vermont AG: Oct 24, 2017last_img read more
