The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) is now offering an interactive map on its website that plots the locations of hundreds of prescription drug take-back boxes statewide, according to Senator Elder Vogel.
The interactive mapping tool can be found on the department’s website, www.ddap.pa.gov, by clicking on the program’s graphic on the homepage and then clicking on the graphic on the following page to “find a location.”
The drug take-back initiative is a partnership between the DDAP, the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association (PDAA) and the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD). PCCD administered the grants under the initiative, and PDAA has been working directly with district attorneys to encourage interest in the program and establish 250 boxes statewide.
Additional drop box locations not supported by the grant, but known to DDAP, were also included on the map as a convenient one-stop resource for information about drop box locations statewide.
