Thank You HCPD and All Who Participated
On April 27 Howard County participated in the semiannual National Take Back Day. At the eight collection sites throughout the county, the Howard County Police Department collected 387 pounds of prescription medications, over the counter medications and pet medications. HC DrugFree's office in the Wilde Lake Village Center was one of the collection locations.

During the September 29, 2012 Take Back Day, HC DrugFree held a Town Hall Meeting as part of The Medicine Abuse Project, an initiative by the national organization, The Partnership at Drugfree.org, to address and curb the growing trend of prescription drug abuse. The event was sponsored by Brian Meshkin and Proove Biosciences, Inc. That day, Howard County collected 491 pounds of medication. Click here
