The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The Winooski Police Department is a proud partner of this program. Community members may drop off any unused or unwanted prescription drugs at the Winooski Police Department on 27 West Allen Street from 10 AM - 2 PM on Saturday, April 27th, 2019.
