Drug Take-Back Program Set for Saturday Across Cheatham County



On Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Cheatham County Community Enhancement Coalition, Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office, and other agencies, will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

 

The community is encouraged to bring pills for disposal to any of the following locations on that day:


National Guard Armory- 1935 TN-12, Ashland City

Kingston Springs Pharmacy- 111 E Kingston Springs Road #103

Hometown Pharmacy- 6509 US-41 ALT, Pleasant View

 

This service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

 

Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.


The project is funded under a grant contract with the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
