The Weekly Briefing – Got Drugs?

Turn in your unused or expired medication for safe disposal

 

by John Vogt - February 18, 2014

Our feature story today has to do with drugs and how we can help safeguard Tioga County, PA from the increased use of harmful and sometimes deadly drug abuse. Chief Jim Bodine of the Wellsboro Police Department guides us through the steps we can take to participate in Drug Take Back Day.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:.00 p.m. DEA will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies focused on removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications to law enforcement officers for destruction. The program provides an opportunity for law enforcement, prevention, treatment, and the business community to collaborate and establish a safe collection site for all Americans, regardless of where they reside.

Disposal of unwanted, unused or expired drugs is one of four strategies for reducing prescription drug abuse and diversion laid out in Epidemic: Responding to America’s Prescription Drug Abuse Crisis. The other strategies include education of health care providers, patients, parents and youth; enhancing and encouraging the establishment of prescription drug monitoring programs in all the states; and increased enforcement to address doctor shopping and pill mills. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications.

Do you need help keeping your home warm?

With bitter cold temperatures continuing across the region, some homeowners may be having trouble meeting the financial demands to heat their homes. If you, or someone you know, are at risk of being unable to heat their home, check out the state’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. This program helps low-income people pay their heating bills through home energy assistance grants and crisis grants. Cash grants are awarded based on household income, family size, type of heating fuel and region. Crisis grants are provided in the event of a heating emergency, including broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced, lack of fuel, termination of utility service or danger of being without fuel or of having utility service terminated. Assistance with home heating crisis situations is available 24 hours a day. Residents should contact Tioga County Assistance Office at 570-724-4051.
