  • National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday

In addition to collaborating with the Police Department on Prescription Drug Take Back Day, the Prevention Coalition has partnered with Kelly's Pharmacy and purchased medication lock boxes.

Items accepted during Prescription Drug Take Back Day include expired solid prescription drugs, unwanted or unused prescription drugs, over the counter drugs (pills), controlled and non-controlled substances and veterinary medications. [We have] no problem with that.

Pakistan won't fight America's proxy war in Afghanistan
Washington has previously accused Islamabad of helping the Afghan Taliban and Haqqani-network militants - allegations that Pakistan denies.

So Razza, on behalf of Chief Richard S. Tamburini and the men and women of the nationally-accredited JPD, is hoping Saturday's Take Back Day results in an all-time record collection that once the event is complete the Deputy Chief will deliver to the DEA's regional site locator where they will be immediately disposed of. "Storing potentially risky drugs in a secure location and disposing of them promptly after use will eliminate the number of people improperly using these substances". Also, flushing unwanted drugs down the toilet or throwing them in the trash can cause safety and health problems, Smith said. "The abuse of these prescription drugs has fueled the nation's opioid epidemic which has led to the largest rate of overdose deaths the United States has ever seen".

"Medicines that just sit in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse", said Shelly Kelly, DHEC's director of health regulations.

As much as the opioid crisis is born of myriad factors, combatting the misuse of prescription drugs by curtailing prescription lengths and drug quantities is a priority in reducing the number of affected people.
