Bow Police Department
Drug Take Back Day
Drug Take Back Day will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Bow Safety Center.
The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
