Unfortunately, prescription drug abuse is an escalating problem that often evolves into opiate abuse. The theft of prescription medication is also a growing trend. Jewelry boxes and medicine cabinets are often the first places a burglar checks when the break into a home. Proper and timely disposal of medications prevents it from falling into the wrong hands.
The Riverside Police Department would like to thank CVS Pharmacy for providing us with another tool to prevent prescription drug theft and abuse.
