Hubbard to host Drug Take Back

Hubbard Police are participating in the DEA safe disposal of prescription medication program on Saturday, September 27th from 10 am - 2 pm in the lobby of the Hubbard Police Department.


Drug Disposal

Why should unwanted, unused or expired medication be properly disposed of?

1) Painkiller abuse starts with family & friends
More than two thirds of people who said they had gotten high on painkillers for the first time in the previous year got the pills from family or friends, according to the analysis of two years of data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

2) Flushed medication ends up in our water supply. Who wants that?
