Second Annual Prescription Pill Drop-Off

The Substance Abuse Advisory Commission is joining forces with the Raleigh Police Department and the City of Raleigh Community Service’s Department to hold the Second Annual Prescription Pill Drop-Off Day on May 22. This is a wonderful community event that raises awareness about prescription drug abuse, and helps to get unneeded pills out of homes and off of the streets.

Prescription drugs will be accepted anonymously, with no questions asked. There will also be information available on proper disposal methods of unneeded medications, as well as the risks of misusing prescription drugs.

Last year, over 44,000 pills were collected and diverted from potential misuse or abuse. Please come out and help to make this year’s event an even bigger success!

Medications will be accepted at these four Food Lion Locations from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, May 22:

  • 5633 Creedmoor Road, at the intersection of Millbrook Road
  • 4510 Capital Boulevard, at Mini-City, close to US 401
  • 1601 Cross Link Road, South of I-40, near Rock Quarry Road
  • 2420 Wycliff Road, near Rex Hospital, off of Lake Boone Trail at I-440
