Drug addiction is a serious and growing problem across the United States and in Montgomery County, and abuse of prescription drugs, especially opiates, is a large part of it. As the problem worsens, so, too, do the consequences. Drug overdose deaths in Montgomery County grew to 249 deaths in 2016 and remained even at 245 deaths in 2017. Still far too many Montgomery County residents are being affected by this epidemic.  

   
The path to addiction and overdose often begins, research shows, with a young person taking pills from a home medicine cabinet, not seeing the harm in trying the “one little pill.” To reduce the availability of those drugs and keep them out of reach for abuse, the Prescription Drug Disposal Program was started in 2010.

A joint program by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and the Police Chiefs Association of Montgomery County, with financial assistance from the Pennsylvania District Attorney’s Association and Pennsylvania American Water, the Prescription Drug Disposal Program provides a safe way for county residents to dispose of unwanted, unneeded and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications. In addition to decreases the circulating drug supply, the program also helps keep our water supply safe. Since 2010 more than 50,000 pounds of unwanted and expired medications have been collected and safely destroyed.
