Drug Take-Back

Bradley County Sheriff’s Office participates in the Prescription Drug Take-Back initiative.

Prescription Drug Take-Back is made available to area Residents of Bradley County.

The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, partnering with Going Respectfully Against Addictive Behaviors (GRAAB), is providing a central location to drop-off leftover or unused medications.

Prescription drugs can now be taken to the Criminal Investigations entrance of the Bradley County Judicial Center. This is located on the south side of the complex, facing APD 40. 

Hours for collection are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Please take part in the prevention of unused medications on getting into the wrong hands or discarded in a less safe area.
