Drug takeback scheduled
April 19, 2013 10:50 AM

The Armstrong-Indiana-Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission, the Indiana County Sheriff’s Office, the Indiana County District Attorney’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration will afford the public its sixth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs on April 27.

Bring your medications for disposal to Diamond Drug at 670 Philadelphia St. in Indiana from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last September, Americans turned in 244 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,200 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. In its five previous such events, DEA and its partners took in more than 2 million pounds of pills.
