Dangerous, unused, unwanted prescription drugs can be disposed of Saturday

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office will be participating in a statewide Prescription Drug Take Back Event on Saturday. While liquids, needles and sharps mercury thermometers, oxygen containers, chemo/radioactive substances, pressurized canisters, illicit drugs or other medical supplies can not be accepted, anyone with unused, unwanted or expired medications in pill form is encouraged to take part in the program.

MTSU has more than 240 combined undergraduate and graduate programs. "The majority of these accidental poisonings generally come from the medicine cabinets in our homes - the drugs we no longer need or have even forgotten are there". It's important to get rid of unused prescriptions to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.

According to a recent national survey, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs.

The agency will set up collection sites in New Orleans from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. with the police departments at Xavier University (3801 S. Carrolton Ave.), Tulane University's Uptown campus (Gibson Hall, 6823 St Charles Ave.), and Southern University of New Orleans (6400 Press Dr). "Rates of prescription drug abuse in the US are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs". Additionally, the drop box allows for safe disposal of prescription medications, which are all too often thrown in the trash or down the sink, which poses a hazard to the community.

Officials also point out that opioid abuse is at epidemic levels in the USA and a top public health concern.
