State Police are Taking Back Unwanted Prescription Drugs at Local Barracks

Naugatuck Patch (Bethany, CT) April 22, 2011

"State police and federal officials will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
On April 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. bring your medications for disposal to Connecticut State Police Barracks Troop I at 631 Amity Road, Bethany, just down Route 63 from Naugatuck. The service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked.
The Connecticut State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are sponsoring the program.
Last September, Americans turned in 242,000 pounds — or 121 tons — of prescription drugs at nearly 4,100 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners." Read More
