Offers thanks for 'Take Back' drug collection
To the Editor:
The Northwest Corner Prevention Network would like to thank the Region One communities for their support of the fall Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, which was held Sept. 27 at Housatonic Valley Regional High School.
Almost 20 people dropped off some 30 pounds of prescription drugs and medications for safe disposal.
NCPN would like to thank the State Police at Troop B, Trooper Roy Dungan and Trooper Lance Carlson, Housatonic Valley Regional High School and Maria Bulson for their support and assistance with the Take-Back Day.
The network reminds the region's residents that National Prescription Drug Take-Back Days are held in the spring and fall to promote safe and confidential disposal and to help keep unwanted and unused drugs and medications out of the hands of others.
