Did you know prescriptions have become one of the most abused illegal drugs for teenagers in the United States, second only to marijuana? In fact, according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, nearly one out of every five teens is said to have abused prescription drugs, with the majority believed to have obtained the drugs from friends and family. This is deeply concerning as statistics show illegally used prescription drugs and marijuana often serve as “gateway drugs” for teens who progress to use heroin and other deadly substances.
Please help us to reduce the accessibility of prescription drugs to young people by anonymously disposing of unwanted prescription drugs in collection containers located at all Suffolk County PD precincts. For more information, please visit:
