The Kitty Hawk Police Department has acquired an Rx Drug Drop Box through the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) which is a non-profit organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the prevention and investigation of prescription drug diversion.

Most prescription medications should not be flushed down the toilet or thrown into the trash. The NADDI Rx Drug Drop Box program addresses a vital public health and safety issue. Medicines that languish in home medicine cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high. Studies show that individuals that abuse prescription drugs often obtain them from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinets.

  

Through a grant from Endo Pharmaceuticals, the NADDI Rx Drug Drop Box program will increase the ability for patients to easily and properly dispose of unneeded, expired, or unwanted medicines.

There is a great need for a permanent solution in which these medicines can be properly disposed of quickly and anonymously. This secure mailbox style box is now permanently located inside the Kitty Hawk Police Department lobby where citizens can walk in and deposit their unwanted, expired medicines during normal business hours.  If a Kitty Hawk resident is unable to get to the Police Department, they can call us at 252-261-3895 and request that an officer come by their residence and pick up the medication for disposal.
