Fall 2015 Drug Take Back Event

On Saturday, September 26th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Dover Police DepartmRx Take Back Results 2013ent and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent prescription drug and opioid abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Medications can be brought to the Dover Police Department at 46 Locust Street for disposal. The service is free, anonymous, and no questions will be asked.

“Dover, like communities across the state, is seeing an increase in heroin use and heroin related overdoes. We know that the majority of heroin users start with prescription drug abuse and then turn to heroin because it is cheaper and easier to get. If we can prevent prescription drug abuse we are in turn taking steps toward preventing heroin use. We urge all members of the public to safely dispose of the medications in their homes at the Drug Take Back.” said Chief Anthony Colarusso of the Dover Police Department.
