National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
Preventing substance abuse is as easy as cleaning out your medicine cabinet. The Bullhead City Police Department will be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) annual National Prescription #DrugTakeBackDay on Saturday, October 23rd.
On this day, law enforcement agencies across the country will provide a venue for people who want to safely and anonymously dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired prescription medications. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family or friends and often from the home medicine cabinet.
A prescription drug drop-off site will be set up outside the Bullhead City Police Department, 1255 Marina Blvd, on October 23rd from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.. All medications collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal.
DEA and its partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs. Liquids (including intravenous solutions), syringes and other sharps, and illegal drugs will not be accepted.
If you can’t make it, the Bullhead City Police Department has a permanent and secure prescription drug drop-off slot in the lobby during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
