Turn in unused prescription drugs on Sept. 25

FALLBROOK - The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI, and others encourage residents to participate in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Sat., Sept. 25.

The Fallbrook Sheriff’s Substation, located at 388 E. Alvarado St. will be one of 20 sites throughout the county that will be accepting potentially dangerous, unused, expired, and unwanted prescription drugs from members of the public with no questions asked from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day.

County reports show that a significant number of young people, generally students between 17 and 25 years of age, are buying prescription drugs such as OxyContin from street level dealers in the United States, Mexico, and illegally over the Internet. Citizens can unknowingly supply dangerous drugs to their children through unused prescriptions in their medicine chests.
