Citizens looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications can now visit the safe and secure permanent drop off location at the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (Lobby).
Region 4 Behavioral Health System has partnered with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office to
establish a permanent MedReturn
drug collection program in order to reduce the supply of drugs that can
potentially harm teens and adults.
According to the 2011 Substance Abuse and Mental Health
Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), more
than six million Americans abuse prescription drugs. Among youth who are 12 to
17 years old, 7.4 percent report past year non-medical use of prescription
Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone’s
responsibility as a matter of public safety. More than 70 percent of young people
abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends or family, a
statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet. Now Madison County citizens won’t have to
wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets.
The collection site is open M-F 8:00 to 5:00. Drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked.
collection unit is produced by MedReturn, LLC of Grafton, WI. MedReturn,
LLC is committed to providing a safe, secure and environmentally friendly way
to help law enforcement agencies and communities collect unwanted or expired
household medication, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and
