St. Clair County Sheriff's Office Drug Take Back

Osceola, MO- On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 15th opportunity in 7 years 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 St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office at 360 Chestnut, Osceola, MO.

(The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last October Americans turned in 456 tons (912,305 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 14 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 9,015,668 million pounds-more than 4,508 tons.

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 prescriptions 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.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the April 28 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website (St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office).

This official event takes place twice a year, but the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office accepts unwanted or unused prescriptions and medications every day of the year.
