GUILFORD — The town of Guilford is doing its best to fight the nation and state of Connecticut’s drug crisis. On Saturday, State Rep. Sean Scanlon was joined by Guilford Development Assets for Youth (DAY) Prevention Coordinator Robyn Sneider and Sue Kruczek, who lost her son Nick to a drug overdose, at the third annual Prescription Drug Take Back Day at Police Department headquarters.

Residents with excess prescription drugs still in the home have a safe and easy opportunity to get rid of them as Guilford has a medication box at the front door of the police lobby.

It is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Scanlon, who has been an outspoken advocate for drug prevention measures at the state capitol, said he was proud of Guilford’s efforts to fight the opioid and heroin crisis.
