Safely secure and dispose of medications to prevent injury or illness with the following means:
- Medication Lockbox: To help reduce risks of accidental overdose or misuse of medication, lockboxes are issued to the prescription holder to help keep them secure.
- Locking Prescription Vials: These devices are pill bottles with a four-digit code to gain access to medication. Perfect for travel, or for individuals who only have one prescription to secure without the space for a lockbox.
- Drug Deactivation Disposal Pouches: Used to prevent drug abuse, by neutralizing the chemical makeup of medications it also provides disposal safe for the environment.
- Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics & Dangerous Drugs Control Rx Take Back Program: The program began at the state level in 2011, and the SE Durant campus has been a drop off location for several year in our campus police department at the corner of 3rd and University. A unit was also recently install in the police office at the McCurtain County campus in Dunlap Bldg, room 201B. These units should not be used for needles, syringes, or inhalers. For more information on how to safely dispose of these items and more outreach and drop locations click here.
In late fall 2022, SE partnered with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services to administer a federal grant on our campus to improve prevention effort within the university community. As a result of this, a coalition has been formed to strategically address how we support our faculty, staff and students in maintaining a prevention lifestyle. If you wish to be directly involved in our efforts, please reach out at email@example.com, come by the office on the Durant campus in Student Union 229, or call 580-745-2988. We would love to have you!
