Drug drop of box located in Law Complex lobby

The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) click here has launched a program designed to significantly reduce the prescription drugs in American homes that are either no longer needed or outdated. These same drugs unfortunately have become the target of theft and misuse, oftentimes by people who have access to the residence. America’s 12 to 17 year olds have made prescription drugs the number one substance of abuse for their age group, and much of that supply is unwittingly coming from the medicine cabinets of their parents, grandparents, and friends. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home and legally and safely turn them over to law enforcement for proper chain of custody and court ordered destruction. Law enforcement is the only entity legally able to accept these medications and process them properly so that they do not fall into the wrong hands. Law enforcement takes control of and destroys drugs on a regular basis as part of their regular operations.

The Chillicothe Police Department and the Ross Co. Sheriff’s Department have initiated quarterly drug drop off events. In addition a NADDI drug box is located inside the Law Enforcement Complex which allows prescription drugs to be dropped off 24 hours a day.

What is accepted: Controlled substance medications (scheduled drugs); non-controlled substance (RX) medications; Over the counter meds; vitamins; syrups, ointments, creams and lotions; inhalers

What is NOT accepted: Any needles, syringes, lancets; Any mercury or cadmium products such as Thermometers or batteries; Medical waste items such as IV bags, bandages, bio-hazardous items; aerosol cans; personal care products (non-medicated shampoo)
