According to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration's National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs.A majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family, friends and the home medicine cabinet. On April 30th, Amherst and other community partners will participate in the second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day in conjunction with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA.) Amherst will sponsor a drop-off site at the Wildwood School from 10:am - 2:00 pm. This is a valuable opportunity to safely dispose of unused, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs. More information is available on the Amherst Health Department web page, or call 413-259-3077.
