National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Saturday | October 28, 2017 | 10 AM - 2 PM

In conjunction with National Drug Take-Back Day, many COMBAT funded agencies and law enforcement have partnered to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means to dispose of unused prescription and over-the-counter medications. Persons can turn in unwanted and expired medications at one of the several drop off locations throughout Jackson County. 

Medications can be accepted in the original bottles, no need to remove labels. Needles and inhalers are NOT accepted.

Why Do We Care?

  • 2,500 teens begin abusing prescription drugs each day
  • Next to marijuana, prescription drugs are the most common drugs used by teens to get high
  • More than 70% of people abusing prescription pain relievers got them through friends or relatives, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet
