ISP Partners with the DEA and the Indiana Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force for the 12th Drug Take Back Day

On Saturday, October 22, 2016 the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the 12th nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative.  The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft through proper disposal of prescription drugs. Collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs which will be properly disposed of without threat to the environment.  This program is for liquid and pill medications.  Needles, new or used, will not be accepted for disposal.  This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. Drugs may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except the Toll Road Post.  The event will be on Saturday, October 22, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
