Wylie Police Department invites the public to take part in a Drug Take-Back Event Saturday, April 30, 10 am to 2 pm. The service is free and anonymous. Labels do not need to be removed, and syringes will not be accepted.

More than six million Americans abuse prescription drugs according to the recent Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Survey on Drug Use and Health. That same study revealed more than 70 percent of people abusing prescription pain relievers got them through friends or relatives, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet.
