The New Hampton Police Department is pleased to announce that on Saturday October 27, 2018 from 10:00AM-2:00PM, we will be taking part in the US Dept of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency 16th National Drug Take Back Day at the New Hampton Police Department Lobby. A police officer will be there to greet folks and answer any questions. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day 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 DEA’s Take Back Day event provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. Nationally, 474.5 tons of drugs were collected during the 15th annual Drug Take Back Day. Information on Treatment Services, Year Round Drug Disposal and Naloxone will also be available at this time or any time by contacting the police department.
