Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office Hosts Prescription Pill Take Back
Apr 27, 2013 10 a.m.
Area Wal-Mart stores.
On April 27, the Okaloosa County Sheriffs’ Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are giving the public its sixth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
Residents are invited to bring their medications for disposal to any of the four area Wal-mart stores between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Uniformed Deputies will be present with collection points located at Wal-mart stores in Crestview, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and Niceville. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Last September, Americans turned in 244 tons of prescription drugs at over 5,200 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. In its five previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners took in over 2 million pounds—over a thousand tons—of pills.
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.
