"We also hope it will encourage other victims of sexual abuse to engage with West Yorkshire Police and our specially trained officers, who will investigate all offences sensitively and thoroughly, with the aim of securing convictions against offenders."
"These types of recommendations have been part of most published guidelines," Dr. Franklin admitted to MNT , but he said that most doctors "aren't doing sufficient screening using brief, publicly available and valid screening tools."
"I'm in public health: there is a cost always to prevention, but prevention usually results in cost savings" she said
...This was the seventh and last event to be held in Macon. According to the Macon Police Department Secretary, Modeste Ewing, "We collected 104 pounds of unwanted medications for disposal, several pounds more than 30 pounds our previous collection this past April. Due to a recent change in DEA disposal regulations, this will be the last collection scheduled by the DEA and local law enforcement. Now DEA-registered pharmacies and hospitals have the ability to set up their own collection sites to collect and dispose of unwanted medications in a safe manner. The DEA had previously stated they would continue Drug Take Back Events until legislation allowed for these new collection laws. “The Macon Police Department will no longer be able to accept medications since we will no longer have a way to dispose of the medications,” states Ewing. A total of 514.5 pounds of medication has been collected from Macon residents since beginning the program in October 2011. The purpose of the  program is to help prevent accidental drug overdose and misuse/abuse as well as offering a safe way to dispose of medications to avoid contamination to the community's water supply. The DEA began hosting National Prescription Drug Take-Back events four years ago because at that time the Controlled Substances Act made no legal provision for patients to rid themselves of unwanted controlled substance prescription drugs except to give them to law enforcement; it banned pharmacies snd hospitals from accepting them. Most people flushed their unused prescription drugs down the toilet, threw them in the trash, or kept them in the household medicine cabinet, resulting in contamination of the water supply and the theft and abuse of the prescription drugs. The week after DEA’s first Take Back Day, the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010 was enacted. The Act authorized DEA to develop and implement regulations that outline methods the public and long-term care facilities can use to transfer pharmaceutical controlled substances and other prescription drugs to authorized collectors for the purpose of disposal. While those regulations were being developed and approved, the DEA sponsored seven more take-back events. DEA’s new disposal regulations were published in the Federal Register on September 9 and can be viewed at www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov or at www.regulations.gov. DEA’s goal in implementing the Act is to expand theoptions available to safely and securely dispose of potentially dangerous prescription medications on a routine basis. At this time, DEA has no plans to sponsor more nationwide Take-Back Days in order to give authorized collectors the opportunity to provide this valuable service to their communities."
