Safe Drug Disposal

October 23, 2021, is recognized as National Drug Take-Back Day. On this day across the nation, Drug Enforcement Agents and our local law enforcement agencies collect unused, expired, or unwanted drugs.

Due to COVID restrictions where in-person events are limited, we want to raise awareness of how and where to properly dispose of unused, expired, or unwanted medications in ways that are safe for our children, the environment, and the community.

Southside Behavioral Health is sharing the six safe drug disposal locations in Brunswick, Mecklenburg, and Halifax Counties on our website. Please call the location of your choice for further information or questions. With this increased community assistance and awareness, we can create safer and healthier communities in our area.
