  • Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Offers Drug Take-Back Day


    Twice a year the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office joins law enforcement agencies nationwide to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. The Drug Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

    This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. 
    • The program is anonymous. 
    • Prescription and over-the-counter solid dosage medications, (tablets and capsules) are accepted. 
    • Intravenous solutions, injectables, needles and oxygen containers will not be accepted.
    • Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
    • The prescriptions should be removed from the original containers and placed in a plastic bag prior to drop off.

    The DEA announced that the 10th National Drug Take-Back will take place September 26th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

    The Sheriff's Office will accommodate collections at three sites in the county:
    Sheriff's Office Headquarters (200 Jefferson County Parkway, Golden, CO)
    Conifer High School (10441 Co. Rd. 73, Conifer, CO)
    Dakota Ridge High School (13399 W. Coal Mine Ave., Littleton, CO)

    A MedReturn Drug Collection Unit is available at the Jefferson Center for Mental Health south entrance on the second floor (9485 West Colfax Ave.) Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  At this location unwanted, unused and expired household medications, including prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs are accepted.  For more information call 303-432-5925.
