Drug Take Back Day nets 375 pounds of unwanted medications

The Steuben County Sheriff and the Steuben Prevention Coalition Opioid Committee report
more than 375 pounds of expired, unwanted, and unused prescription medications were collected
Saturday at the biannual “Drug Prescription Take Back” collection.

The event was held in recognition of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)’s national campaign.

The illegal use of prescription drugs casts a wide net of public safety related issues and offer loved ones a
