Drug Take Back Event, Saturday, October 26
The Moorhead Police Department will be partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to collect unwanted or expired prescription medications as part of the National Prescription DrugTake Back Day.
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.
