FCSO Participates in Drug Take Back Day


Faulkner County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant Robert Doyal and Peer Recovery Specialist Ottelia Basart had a great time passing out educational resources and assisting citizens with disposing of unused prescription medications recently for DEA National Drug Take Back Day. 

By keeping unused or old prescriptions in your medicine cabinet, you could put your loved ones at risk. Before you flush your old drugs down the drain, however, know that those medications will likely end up in your drinking water. Prescription drugs can’t be flushed or discarded into the trash. If thrown away whole, those drugs may be taken out of the garbage. Sometimes, people disguise drugs by mixing them into kitty litter or coffee grounds. However, those drugs seep into the earth, again finding their way into our water supply. To safely dispose of drugs, community members can drop old prescriptions into their local Drug Take Back Box.
