Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
|Date:||September 25, 2010|
|Time:||10:00 AM - 2:00 PM|
Location: Grange Hall
The Connecticut State Police and East Haddam Police are partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration in conducting a Prescription Drug Take-Back Day in East Haddam. This event will take place on Saturday, September 25, 2010 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Grange Hall, 488 Town Street, East Haddam.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Prescription drug abuse in the U.S. is increasing at alarming rates as well as poisoning and overdoses. The DEA is launching its first ever campaign of its kind and this will provide a safe way for Americans to dispose of their unwanted prescription drugs.
