On September 25, 2010, Drug Enforcement Authority (DEA) will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at sites established throughout the country. The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. To learn more about other addiction treatments, you can find more information about Pacific Ridge at their website.
The drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety, however, this residential treatment can help you getting out of drugs.
This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.
- The program is anonymous.
- Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.
- Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.
- Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
As well for those who are struggling with opioid addiction and are having a hard time getting sober, we suggest you to visit this website www.recoverydelivered.com/california-suboxone-doctors/ in here you will find doctors who provide online treatment and the results are very effective and most important you can do it from home with the support of your love ones.
