RX take-back program a success

The community stepped up at the recent National Prescription Drug Take Day sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department partnered with El Dorado Hills Vision Coalition and Drug Free Divide to offer three locations where residents could bring old and unwanted prescriptions for destruction. The disposal sites were open four hours, and during that time 195.9 pounds of prescriptions drugs were taken in. The disposed drugs were taken to the DEA for destruction.

“Getting drugs off the street, whether they’re prescription or not, is a priority for the Sheriff’s Office,” said Sheriff John D’Agostini. “The take-back of unwanted prescription drugs not only can save a life but could also reduce crime. Burglary suspects sometimes target prescription drugs while committing their crime.”
