The Prescription Drug Take-Back program addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.
Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.
Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine.
If you have expired or unwanted prescription drugs (non-liquid), you may drop them off at these locations:
McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office
201 5th St NW, Ste 175
Watford City, SD
Mountrail County Sheriff’s Office
101 N Main St

Please clean out your medicine cabinet and make your home safe from drug theft and abuse.
