DEA Drug Takeback Day today, Naloxone training offered

The Southbury Police Department is among the local law enforcement agencies participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration's Drug Takeback Day today.  It's a chance for the public to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  No intravenous solutions, injectables, needles or thermometers will be accepted, neither illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.  It's from 9am to 2pm.  In addition to local police departments taking part in the Takeback Day, the Northwest Corner Prevention Network is offering a course on how to administer Naloxone.  Participants will learn how to use the opioid reversal drug to save a life if someone suffering an opioid overdose. Participants will also receive a free Naloxone kit, though supplies are limited.  The training session Saturday is at noon at Kent Town Hall.
