Lexington, S.C. (April 21, 2017) – The Lexington Police Department, along with the Lexington/Richland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council (LRADAC) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will be conducting a Drug Take Back event at the CVS Pharmacy on Saturday, April 29, 2017.
This event will be held at the CVS Pharmacy located at 5608 Sunset Blvd. in Lexington, South Carolina and will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will end at 2:00 p.m.
The Lexington Police Department tent will be set up in the parking lot and those interested in dropping off discarded prescription drugs can bring them there.
The prescription drugs collected will be turned over to the DEA for proper disposal.
Chief Terrence Green says, “Addiction to prescription medications continues to be on a dangerous rise and has an effect on families in the Town of Lexington community and beyond. Events like these are the perfect opportunity to take a few minutes to clean your medicine cabinet to ensure that these dangerous drugs are disposed of safely and are kept out of the hands of those who would abuse them.”
