GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Geneva County Sheriff’s Office worked with Spectacare Thursday to take unused and expired prescription drugs off the streets.

Without any questions, folks were able to bring in their unused prescriptions.

Officials say it helps keep the drugs away from family members who may have an addiction, and it keeps narcotics from being flushed in restrooms and eventually getting into the water supply.

“So there’s not a possibility that kids or teenagers can get the drugs and misuse them,” Spectracare Counselor James Corbitt said “And we also don’t want people to flush their meds, because if they do, it can get into the water system which is not healthy either.”

Spectracare provides drug addiction and mental health counseling across five Wiregrass counties.
