Please visit www.focus205.org for complete information regarding the Focus 205 process.
In conjunction with Chris Herren's visit, the Elmhurst Police Department will be holding a special Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, December 3 from 9 AM to 1 PM outside of the Elmhurst Police Station, 125 E. First Street. One thing parents can do to safeguard their children is to clean out their medicine cabinet and get rid of pain pills left over from previous surgeries or injuries. The opioid oxycodone is found in a number of prescription drugs and can be highly addictive. Abuse of this drug produces a euphoric high similar to that of heroin.
In October, the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention announced that at least half of all opioid overdose deaths involve prescription painkillers.
