National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is scheduled for Saturday and Los Alamos will have two drop-off locations, according to LAPD’s Oliver Morris.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., those who have unused prescription drugs can drop them off at the Los Alamos Medical Center parking lot or the White Rock Visitor Center parking lot.
Morris said no needles are allowed.
Members of the New Mexico Congressional delegation also urging state residents to take part.
“New Mexico has taken strong steps in fighting the prescription drug abuse epidemic, but we must keep it up,” Senator Tom Udall (D-N.M.) said. “We know that addiction to painkillers, particularly among teens, often begins with taking unused medications found at home. But we also know that events like Take-Back Day are helping New Mexico families protect their loved ones from the threat of abuse. I encourage the public to take advantage of this free and anonymous opportunity, and help us keep unused or expired prescriptions out of our medicine cabinets, out of our water systems, and most importantly, off the streets and out of the hands of our children.”
