23rd “Drug Take Back Day” Sat. Oct 29

INDIANA STATE POLICE

Partners with Drug Enforcement Administration for 23rd
“Drug Take Back Day”

This coming Saturday October 29, 2022, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the 23rd nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative.  The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft through proper disposal of prescription drugs.

Fort Wayne Location:  Indiana State Police, Fort Wayne Post, 5811 Ellison Road

Collection Time: 10:00am until 2:00pm

Collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs which will be properly disposed of without threat to the environment.

  • This program is for liquid and pill medications.
  • Vaping pens without batteries and vaping cartridges will also be taken.
  • Needles, new or used, WILL NOT be accepted for disposal.
  • This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.

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.

In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—pose both potential safety and health hazards.

Once again, the Indiana State Police is pleased to partner with the DEA, and as in the past, unwanted medications may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except for the Lowell and Toll Road Posts.  The event will be on Saturday, October 29, 2022 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

The Drug Take Back events are the safe, popular and responsible way for the public to legally dispose of prescription drugs with no questions asked.
