(Dublin, Ohio) — As part of its ongoing efforts to eliminate drug abuse, the Dublin Police Department will host a Drug Take Back event this weekend.
With students home during the summer months, now is a critical time to ensure a risk-free environment and prevent overdoses and medication theft. Anyone can safely dispose of unused, unwanted and expired prescription or over-the-counter medication at the Drug Take Back event.
“Helping our young people steer clear of drug abuse can start with the simple act of cleaning out our medicine cabinets,” Dublin Police Officer Kathy Evans says. “These take back events provide a routine time for residents and neighbors to actively curb this issue in order to guarantee a brighter future for our community.”
