NATIONAL DRUG TAKE BACK INITIATIVE
On Saturday, April 30, 2022, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. This initiative seeks to prevent increased pill abuse and theft by providing a unified opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. This one-day effort will bring national attention to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.
- The program is free and anonymous;
- Prescription and over-the-counter solid dosage medications (i.e.: tablets and capsules) will be accepted;
- Intra-venous solutions, injectable’ s, inhalers, and needles will not be accepted;
- Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamines are not a part of this initiative.
On April 30, 2022, the following collection site, hosted by The Colony Police Department, will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.:
