Brentwood Police to participate in drug take-back event

The Beckley Police Department and Drug Enforcement Administration will provide the public with an opportunity to rid their homes of potentially unsafe expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.at Raleigh County Commission on Aging.

This year's program is part of a nationwide government sponsored drug disposal, and there are a number of locations throughout the Buffalo area where medications are being accepted.

"This is an excellent opportunity to take a look at the medicines that have collected in your medicine cabinet and properly dispose of something that could potentially be unsafe", stated Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of the MSP.

David Farley said in a press release the initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.

"In addition to those who choose to abuse or misuse prescription drugs, we also have concerns about children or others accidentally getting a hold of those drugs and unintentionally overdosing".

This one-day event will make it convenient for the public to rid their homes of potentially risky prescription drugs.

According to the DEA website, 4,145 pounds of medications were collected in MS and 900,386 pounds were collected in the United States during the April 2017 event.

"Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet".

MSP collection sites can be found here.
