The North Andover Police Department is committed to this one-day collaborative prescription drug take-back initiative event with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s homes. This national initiative provides an opportunity for the public to surrender pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply for the increasing abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in the United States and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety every day.
