National prescription Takeback Saturday April 27, 10am - 2pm

On Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
we will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill
abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially
dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription
drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Sheriff
station. (The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
would like to remind the public that they cannot accept
liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The
service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public
health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets
are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.
Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are
alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental
poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies
show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are
obtained from family and friends, including from the
home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now
advised that their usual methods for disposing of
unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or
throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety
and health hazards.
