Prescription Drug Take-Back Events Encourage Citizen Action

Prescription Drug Take-Back Events Encourage Citizen Action

Here in Southern Oregon, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS), Josephine County Sheriff's Office (JoCSO) and Klamath Falls Police Department (KFPD) have announced their participation in the event. Chief Clements states, "Storing potentially risky drugs in a secure location and disposing of them promptly after use will reduce the availability to people improperly using these substances".

A 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs and "a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet", according to the DEA website. Law enforcement personnel will not count, inventory or log medications.

According to Brittni Kaylor, coordinator of the Mason County Prevention Coalition, the event will be held from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.in two local locations - the New Haven Fire Station and the parking lot next to the courthouse annex in Point Pleasant.

National Prescription Drug Take Back events take place in April and October each year and continue to remove ever-higher amounts of opioids and other medicines from the nation's homes, where they could be stolen and abused by family members and visitors, including children and teens.

Anyone unable to take their medications to the drug take back event can also dispose of them at the permanent drop box, located at the Mason County Courthouse.
