Use interactive map to find drug drop-off locations

"We know that four out of five heroin users got started with a prescription opioid that they got from someone else's medicine cabinet in a majority of cases", said Dr. Adams.

This weekend is the marking of the annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, but the Union County Sheriff's Office says every day of the year they make it a point to collect prescription drugs.

The drop-off location is in the East Hills Mall Parking lot in St. Joseph near the old Sears store.

"National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and health issue by providing a convenient way for citizens to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths", says KSP Commissioner Rick Sanders.

Getting those medication out of the home - and out of the reach of potential abusers - is the goal of the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on April 28. Overall, in its 14 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in more than 9 million pounds-more than 4,500 tons-of pills. A year ago more than 2,000 lbs. of controlled substances were collected during the drug take back events.

Proper disposal of unused prescription drugs protects the environment and can save lives.

From 10 a.m.to 2 p.m., drop-off sites will be open throughout the region, operated by police departments and other agencies.

Google is throwing its weight behind the effort to tackle America's opioid crisis. "It nearly always comes back to a neighbor, friend, or a relative that they knew took something that they might be something they might want to use". The event is free and anonymous, with no questions asked.
