  • Drug take-back day is this weekend

The DEA's Take Back Day is a initiative to collect these drugs, preventing drug addiction and overdose death. "A year ago we had 12", said Bill Gentes of the Lake County Health Department.

Law enforcement agencies across the country hosted takeback events to help you dispose of unused, unneeded or expired prescription medication as part of National Prescription Take-Back Back Day, ' on Saturday. NJCR offers a series of programs statewide, including free family education workshops and insurance navigation community workshops.

In Johnson City alone, we were told more than 40 people came out to drop off medications. Some have year-round drug disposal boxes for residents.

The sites accept pills, tablets, and patches but not liquids or syringes.

The researchers also caution that patients should always consult with their physicians before changing any medication regimen. Patients with concerns should continue taking their medications until they can talk with their doctor, researchers say.

With the help of police, Erie County is urging people to get unwanted medications out of their homes and away from potential drug users.

"They are even turning in pet medications", said Leslie Knight, a Maine Medical Center registered nurse who was there with about a half-dozen of her nursing colleagues.

He said the other thing people question is transporting another person's prescription if they are, for example, cleaning out the house of someone who has died. "We can get them destroyed and get them off the streets", says LoyAnn Kistler, an evidence specialist for the RCPD.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, there are about 100 collection sites open around Minnesota.
