Drug Take Back Initiative is This Saturday in St. Tammany

This Saturday (October 26, 2019) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office
will participate in a one-day collaborative effort with the Drug Enforcement Administration to remove unused and expired medications from homes and medicine cabinets.

Bring your pills for disposal to the STPSO Administrative Building, 300 Brownswitch Road, in Slidell or the STPSO Law Enforcement Complex at 2070 Collins Blvd., in Covington. (The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps - only pills or patches.)

The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Any identifying information should be removed from containers before being deposited.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office also has permanent drug take-back boxes at both of the above listed locations. This on-going initiative is a collaborative effort in partnership with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana (BCBSLA), the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI), and numerous Louisiana law enforcement agencies.

Since the permanent drug take-back boxes were put in place in late 2017, St. Tammany Parish residents have presented more than 700 lbs. of drugs for disposal.
