Prescription Drug Take Back Program
Over the past several years, alarming rates of addiction and overdose deaths from prescription drug abuse, particularly opioids, have been reported. As it has in every city and county nationally, the prescription drug crisis has affected us here in Beaufort County.
In 2018, response to this crisis, the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, the Beaufort Memorial Hospital and the Lowcountry Alliance for Healthy Youth partnered to install three prescription drug drop boxes in Beaufort County.
The drug drop boxes provide a convenient and safe way for Beaufort County residents to dispose of unused and potential dangerous prescription medications and to keep them out of the wrong hands.
Beaufort County residents can find the drug drop-off boxes at the following locations from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays:
Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Center
