14TH NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY

OCTOBER 28, 2017

October 19, 2017

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public the opportunity to dispose of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs on Saturday, October 28th, 2017.

· Vinton Station – 435 E. Vinton, Suite D

(The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.)  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.)

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.

“Prescription drug abuse is a huge problem and this is a great opportunity for folks around the country to help reduce the threat,” Rosenberg said.  "Please clean out your medicine cabinet and make your home safe from drug theft and abuse.”

During the 13th National Prescription Drug Take-Back a total weight (pounds): 900,386 lbs. (450 Tons) were collected nationwide. In Texas, a total of 72,361 lbs were collected.
