Jersey Shore Prescription Drug Take-Back Locations

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is doing a national take-back event this weekend so the public can safely dispose of extra medication, with a ton of drop off points in our area.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is meant to curb prescription drug abuse, and educate the public about prescription drug abuse.

It will take place across the country this Saturday, April 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Last September, a similar event brought in 244 tons of unused and unwanted meds.

Considering the popularity of ‘pill/pharm parties’ among teens, and the prevalence of prescription drug addiction in our area, it’s important to keep drugs and medications away from the people they weren’t prescribed for.

Sure, you could just throw it in the garbage or down the toilet, but that’s not always the safest option.

Certain police departments in the following towns are serving as drop-off locations:

Monmouth County: Aberdeen, Allenhurst, Asbury Park, Avon, Belmar, Brielle, Colts Neck, Deal, Eatontown, Englishtown, Fair Haven, Freehold, Holmdel, Howell, Keansburg, Keyport, Little Silver, Long Branch, Manalapan, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Neptune, Neptune City, Oakhurst, Oceanport, Sea Girt, Shrewsbury, Spring Lake, Spring Lake Heights, and West Long Branch.

Ocean County: Barnegat, Beach Haven, Beachwood, Jackson, Ocean Gate, Manahawkin, Pine Beach, Point Pleasant Beach, Point Pleasant,  Seaside Park, and Toms River.
