[ARCHIVED] DEA National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day April 26, 2014

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation's medicine cabinets. The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal drug use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety from accidental poisonings and groundwater contamination.

This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the increasing issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.
• The program is free & anonymous
• Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted
• Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will NOT be accepted
• Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are NOT a part of this initiative.
The Montgomery Police Department is a collection site for this drug take back initiative and will be participating in the even on April 26, 2014 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm only.
