Unused medications in homes helped fuel the heroin and opioid crisis that has gripped ME and other states.

"You don't want to have these left over medications laying around the house.so that's what brought me here", said Heather Jahnke, who dropped off a bag. "And we see a lot of times in residential burglaries, prescription drugs are missing, they're not sure what they had, they're not sure what they used and what they didn't", said Sgt. Gaston.

But, even with the Take Back Program's success, the pill problem has continued to get worse over the years.

Since the last Take Back Day in October, Winter Park police officials told News 6 it has collected 500 pounds of prescription pills.

According to the DEA's 2017 National Drug Threat Assessment, drug poisoning deaths from opioid overdoses outnumbered those caused by firearms, vehicle crashes, suicides and homicides. "Previous year we had 12", said Bill Gentes of the Lake County Health Department.

All 30 Michigan State Police (MSP) posts also participate in the "Take-Back" initiative by serving as drop-off locations.

Santa Barbara City Police collected about four boxes of old prescription drugs at La Cumbre Plaza.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office reported collecting more than 75 boxes and 2,100 pounds of drugs during various "Drug Take Back" events throughout the week. "It is just an opportunity for them to get rid of that and dispose of it, without any worries", said William Schrom, Chemung County Undersheriff.
