News Release
Drug Take Back - 10/21/21

The Grants Pass Police Department will be participating in the next National Drug Take Back Day on October 23, 2021, from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  Citizens can safely and anonymously turn over unused medication at the Police Department Headquarters located at 726 NE 7th Street.  

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers or sedatives in 2019. The survey also showed that a majority of misused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

For those who cannot make this event, the Grants Pass Police Department offers a permanent drug take back box in our lobby.  Citizens may discard of old medication in the box in an anonymous manner year-round.
