Cabot, AR, (Sept. 17, 2020)—Cabot Emergency Hospital (CEH) has officially opened its new “Medication Take Back” kiosk in an effort to help combat local prescription drug abuse. This immediately gives local citizens a safe and easily accessible way to dispose of unused, unwanted or expired medications, including controlled substances and over-the-counter medications, at no cost.
Located near the entrance of Cabot Emergency Hospital, the kiosk will be overseen by Cabot Police Department (CPD). Captain Marty, Officer Rogers and Officer Harris of CPD joined CEH Medical Director, Dr. White, in officially opening the kiosk and exchanging keys.
“Drug overdoses are a leading cause of ER visits and deaths in Arkansas. To help combat prescription drug abuse, we must start by making sure prescriptions do not fall into the wrong hands. We are proud to provide this disposal kiosk to local citizens as one more way to keep our community safe and healthy.” said Dr. Justin White.
In addition to offering a 24/7, 365 day a year solution to prescription drug disposal, Cabot Emergency Hospital plans to participate in upcoming DEA sponsored National Prescription Drug Take Back Days.
