Did you know that unused prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse. The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family, friends and their home medicine cabinet. If you have old or unused prescriptions please drop them off in the lobby of the Portage Police Department. Their drug disposal is always available in their lobby during business hours. They will have an Officer standing by on October 27th from 10am-2pm to answer any questions you might have. Needles or liquids cannot be accepted. Visit DEA takeback.com for more information.
