Drug Take-Back Program

The Virginia Tech Police Department has established a Drug Take-Back program to collect unwanted drugs (including prescription medications) from Virginia Tech students (and employees? Community members?)

Unwanted drugs can be dropped off anonymously at the Virginia Tech Dispatch Center, 230 Sterrett Drive, Blacksburg, VA 24061. The office is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and all drop-offs are completely anonymous.

Individuals who drop off drugs will not be asked for any personal information and will be held harmless.

“Approximately 46,000 Americans die each year from drug-related deaths and four out of five new heroin users starting with prescription medications,” according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

The program provides a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications and illegal drugs.
