Warwick Police host drug take-back day

As communities across the country struggle with prescription drug abuse and opioid addiction, U.S. Senator Jack Reed is encouraging Rhode Islanders to take advantage of the upcoming National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m., and discard all unwanted narcotic pain killers and other prescription drugs at participating local police stations.

The drop box service is free and anonymous, and a list of participating police departments can be found at:www.dea.gov (please see current RI list of locations below)

“This is a public health and public safety program that makes it more convenient for people to do the right thing and safely dispose of unused prescription drugs.  By getting these drugs out of medicine cabinets, it reduces the number of medications being misused or stolen.  And it also helps stop dangerous chemicals and pharmaceuticals from getting into our water supply,” said Reed, a member of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds the DEA.
