Program designed to get drugs off the street


Somerset —

Wilson said the program, which has been in operation for several months now, has already garnered much public interest and support. 
“One of the biggest concerns presented to us came from hospice agencies,” Wilson said. “They expressed their concern about families who had recently lost loved ones that were taking several medications. 
“These families did not have appropriate and safe ways of disposing of these medications,” Wilson said. 
Now, those families can dispose of their loved ones’ medications properly. 
“With the Pulaski KY-ASAP office now located at the Pulaski County Courthouse, I have witnessed many people using the drop-off container at the (sheriff’s department),” Wilson said. 
Wilson said the Pulaski KY-ASAP Board anticipates future medicine drop-off locations to be added over the next several months.
