More than 10 local police departments will participate in National Drug Take on Saturday, Oct. 27, but Cullerton wants to remind residents that many of these locations are available year-round to promote efforts to eliminate the abuse of controlled prescription drugs.

“The opioid addiction does not discriminate,” Cullerton said. “We must work together to keep unnecessary drugs out of our homes to prevent and eliminate the opioid crisis in our communities.”

The following police departments are safe disposal locations for unwanted drugs year-round: Addison Police Department, Bensenville Police Department, Bloomingdale Police Department, Elmhurst Police Department, Glen Ellyn Police Department, Glendale Heights, Itasca Police Department, Roselle Police Department, Villa Park Police Department and Wood Dale Police Department.

Cullerton has worked to address the heroin and opioid abuse and addiction through monumental legislation. The law he championed combats the opioid epidemic in a variety of ways, such as requiring state agencies to develop a three-year heroin and opioid drug prevention program and expanding state-funded treatment to include addiction treatment and prescription costs.

“Our work to end the opioid overdose epidemic in Illinois and across our nation is far from done,” Cullerton said. “We cannot rest until this crisis is eliminated from our communities. Until then our top priority will remain putting protections and precautions in place to save lives.”

Cullerton urges DuPage County residents to give his Villa Park Office a call at (630) 903-6662 with any questions regarding where to receive help fighting opioid addiction.
