The Day (Groton, CT) April 20, 2011

"As federal drug enforcement officials on Tuesday announced a new federal initiative to combat what it called the 'alarming health crisis' of prescription drug abuse, a local take-back event to provide the public with a chance to safely dispose of unused or unwanted medications was being planned.
The local event, organized by town police and the senior center, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 30 at the senior center, 102 Newtown Road.
Other partners in the event are the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, Groton TRIAD and the Ledge Light Health District. The event is one of many nationwide that are part of the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Program." Read More
