National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week
January 22-28

Walmart is now offering pharmacy customers a free drug disposal product, DisposeRX. Read more about it:


We encourage you to "Monitor, Secure and Dispose"of your prescription medications.  Store medicine in a locked box.  Remove old medications, but DO NOT flush unwanted drugs, or place in trash.  The National Prescription Take Back Initiative schedules collection events each spring and fall.  The Harrison Police Dept and the Boone County Sheriffs Office participates in these events, and have set disposal bins at their locations for drop offs at any times. 

How to dispose of Medications

It is time to Clean out your medicine cabinet of outdated, unused or unwanted medications. If you find that you have anything like this in your cabinet or on your shelves, this is a great time to get rid of them.  Come on by.  Takeback is a great service to our community because it promotes a safe method of getting rid of our unused medications and keeping them out of the hands of our youth. 

The Annual National Event is usually  in April.  In 2017 it was on Saturday, April 29th,
where old medications could be taken to the Harrison Police Department
or to the Boone County Sheriff’s Department from 10-2.

Myth:  Coffee can sober up someone who has had too much to drink.
Fact:  Time, is the only thing that can sober someone.  It takes about one hour to oxidize each drink.

Myth:  Someone who has had too much to drink will look intoxicated.
Fact:  Physical appearance can be misleading.  One drink can impair someone's ability to drive.  Judgment is the first thing affected when someone has been drinking and important motor skills are next.

Myth:  You'll get drunk a lot quicker with hard liquor than with a beer or wine cooler.
Fact:  Beer, winecoolers, wine, and hard liquor all have equivalent levels of alcohohl and will make you equally intoxicate.

Myth:  Alcohol is a great way to relax ad reduce stress.
Fact: Alcohol increases the level of stress that is placed on the body.  Adrenaline levels increase in the body as we drink,  We may feel more relaxed when we drink alcohol, but the body actually come under additional stress.


I wish to thank all the above organizations listed above, for helping me provide the information from these resources.  It is a community effort.  The "IT TAKES A VILLAGE" attitude makes a great community in which we live.  We are fortunate to have such caring people among us.
