The DEA’s Drug Take Back Program is Saturday, April 28th from 10am-2pm.
In Culpeper, on April 28th from 10am-2pm, you can take your unwanted medications to the Virginia State Police Division II Headquarters 15148 State Police Rd, Culpeper, VA 22701.
While the Culpeper Police Department is not participating in the Saturday event, they do have a self serve kiosk where you can drop off your unwanted medications any day Monday – Friday during the hours of 8am-5pm.
Please Note: No inhalers, injectables, or needles can be disposed of at these locations.
All medications can be misused but the categories that pose the most danger are pain pills, anti-seizure, anti-anxiety, anti-depressents, and even pet medications.
This mom’s story really emphasizes the importance of disposing of unused medications so they don’t have a chance to be misused. In the summer of 2015, Becky Savage lost 2 of her sons in the same day to accidental hydrocodone/alcohol overdose. This story needs to be told over and over again, and we MUST take action and do what we can to prevent medications from getting into the wrong hands.
Please share this mom’s story and spread the word about the importance of cleaning out your medicine cabinet.
