Drug Take Back Information
Prescription Drug Take Back addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.
The Kenova Police Department provides an opportunity for our citizans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.
