Bring your medications for disposal to either the Atoka City Hall at 334 Atoka-Munford Road, Atoka, or the Tipton County Criminal Justice Complex at 1801 South College Street, Covington. Prescription drug abuse in this country is an epidemic. You could be partly to blame without even knowing it. With pill abuse at record levels, addicts are looking in as many medicine cabinets as possible – maybe even yours. We can help. On Saturday,  DEA and its partners nationwide will operate collection sites in your community where Americans can turn in their unused, unneeded, and expired prescription drug medications – no questions asked. This is a free, anonymous service that will help keep your home safe and could save lives. Prescription drugs treat illness and alleviate pain, but they should only be used when prescribed by a doctor. Unfortunately, these medications often end up in the wrong hands. More than 70 percent of people who abuse these medications say they get them from family or friends. Many users of street drugs like heroin start with abusing painkillers. Don’t be an unknowing source. Don’t harm the water supply by flushing your medicine down the toilet. Strengthen your community and make your home safer by participating in this national initiative.
