Potter County Sheriff's Department To Participate In National Drug Take-Back Initiative October 22nd

The Potter County Sheriff’s Department will be participating in the 12th National Take-Back Initiative, taking back unwanted prescription drugs.

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, from 10 am to 2 pm, the Potter County Sheriff’s Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 12th opportunity in six years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. 

Controlled, non–controlled, and over the counter medications will be collected. 

Bring your pills for disposal to the Potter County Court House, rear entrance, located at One East 2nd St. Coudersport, PA 16915 (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) 

The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. 

Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

 For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the October 22nd Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website.
