Longview Anti-Drug Coalition taking back unused prescription drugs Saturday

On Saturday, the Drug Enforcement Administration will host the 15th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

This permanent prescription drop box is a safe, simple, secure and environmentally-friendly way to help law enforcement agencies and communities collect unwanted or expired household medications, including prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs. The service is free and anonymous. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. It's important to get rid of unused prescriptions to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. (DEA can not accept liquids, needles or sharps.) "Take Back Day helps to keep drugs out of the hands of abusers and potentially save lives by removing unused painkillers and controlled drugs from homes", said DEA Acting Administrator Robert W. Patterson. The CDC reports that one person dies every 19 minutes from a drug overdose in the US through prescription pain killers.
