Anaheim PD is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Agency and other public agencies in the first-ever national drug “Take Back” day.
The public is invited to drop off drugs in front of the police department from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Sept. 25, no questions asked.
“Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem nationally and locally,” said Sgt. Rick Martinez. “Most Americans don’t know how to dispose of prescription drugs. This is the perfect opportunity to do so.”
According to a DEA press release, the rate of prescription drug abuse is rising at alarming rates, and studies show that a majority of abused drugs are obtained from family and friends.
