Drug Take Back

Date Posted: 04/30/2024

--152 Pounds of Prescription Drugs taken for Disposal-

Sergeant Joe Beaudin with the Stone County Sheriff's Office recently delivered 152 pounds of prescription medication to be destroyed as part of the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Program. This is a great program, and a safe, responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. Statistics show that the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. Many of these prescription drugs are taken by kids with some resulting in overdose or death. The National Prescription Drug Take-Back is geared toward prevention and relies a lot on community support and dedicated Deputies like Sergeant Beaudin. With the overall dedication, 152 pounds of prescription drugs will not be in the hands of our children. 

If you have unused or expired prescription drugs, we highly encourage you to take advantage of this program and dispose of them. They may be disposed of by bringing them to the Sheriff's Office and placing them in the drug take back box. Please do not bring liquids to deposit in the drop box - contact your local doctor or pharmacy for instructions on how to dispose of liquid medications).

The drug take-back drop box is in front of the Stone County Sheriff's Office, at 1009 Sheriffs Drive, Mountain View, AR, 72560. Or to find other drop locations, you may visit:
