Get Rid of Your Unwanted or Expired Prescriptions

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the Arizona High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (AZHIDTA) are working together on the Opioid Monitoring Initiative.

There is a nationwide opioid epidemic and everyone’s help is needed to combat this problem.

In Arizona, two people a day die from opioid or heroin related overdoses.

Law enforcement wants to make sure that we keep our community safe during this holiday season.  They are asking everyone to go through your medicine cabinet and take those unused, unwanted and expired medications to a prescription drug drop box.

Anyone can get hooked to prescription pills and we want to make sure your guests do not have easy access to your medicine cabinets.

The closest drop off locations for San Tan Valley residents are:

Pinal County Sheriff's Office - San Tan Valley Substation - 85 W. Combs Road Ste. 115 San Tan Valley, AZ 85140
