Law enforcement agencies across the country and around the Shore will participate in National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 26, 2014.  Al Della Fave with the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office says the DEA’s event is an important weapon in the war on drugs.

“It’s been definitively found that prescription drugs are what leads to the harder drug abuses, the heroin and the opiates,”  Della Fave said.  “It’s that dependence which forces the individual to seek cheaper methods to sustain their addiction.”

Della Fave also cautioned consumers not to flush unused pills down the toilet, as studies have shown this can contaminate the water supply.  He urges people who have automatic refills on their prescriptions to make sure to cancel the program when the medications are no longer needed.
