Williamsburg Drug Take Back

Williamsburg Drug Take Back

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA's) Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

Williamsburg Drop-Offs

The Williamsburg Police Department has partnered with the Williamsburg Fire Department to participate in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Our collection location is at the:
Fire Department
440 N Boundary Street
Williamsburg, VA 23185

This is a drive-through drop off event, so you won't even have to exit your vehicle.
