This Saturday, there will be multiple locations throughout the state where Hoosiers can safely and conveniently dispose of prescription drugs.

It’s important to get rid of unused, expired or unwanted drugs in order to help curb prescription drug abuse. With four out of five new heroin users starting with prescription medications, these take-back programs can make a real difference in saving lives.

Liquid and pill medications can be dropped off anonymously, with no questions asked, between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
