Drug Take Back Day
April 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am
The DEA?s Drug Take Back Program is Saturday, April 28th from 10-2.
In Culpeper, those in the community are urged to take their unwanted medications to the Virginia State Police Division II Headquarters 15148 State Police Rd, Culpeper, VA 22701 to safely dispose of it.
The Culpeper Police Department is not participating in the Saturday event, but they do have a self serve kiosk where you can drop off your unwanted medications any day Monday ? Friday during the hours of 8-5.
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 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. Becky Savage lost 2 of her sons in the same day in 2015 due to accidental hydrocodone/alcohol overdose.
