   "The purpose of this free program is to help protect the environment by getting rid of dangerous pharmaceuticals such as unwanted , unused and outdated medicine , " said Somerset County Sheriff Darrin Russo . “Through the support of our residents for over 10 years , our county has been safer because of the drop - off program .
   "Leftover medicine poses a serious threat when it’s flushed down the toilet or disposed in the drain because it can harm wildlife , contaminate bodies of water and end up in our drinking - water , " he said .
   According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse , most people take prescription medication responsibly . However , in 2017 an estimated 18 million people ( more than 6 percent of those 12 - years of age and older ) have misused medication at least once in the past year . The 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows an estimated 2 million Americans have misused prescription pain relievers for the first time between 2016 and 2017 , which averages to approximately 5 , 480 first - time drug misuse per day .
   Furthermore , the USDEA reports that prescription drugs , including opioids and antidepressants , are responsible for more overdose deaths than street drugs such as cocaine , heroin and methamphetamines . Many teenagers mistakenly believe prescription drugs are "much safer" than illegal drugs and that prescription painkillers are not addictive .
