A Drug Free Zone

OPERATION MEDICINE CABINET

Project Description

OPERATION MEDICINE CABINET/NATIONAL TAKE BACK DAY

In 2012 Drug Free Highlands received funding to purchase permanent drop boxes for each law enforcement agency so that unused and/or expired prescription drugs could be dropped during participating agencies business hours. We have also given out over 900 DeTerra bags which are used to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. Currently we have Dispose Rx packets available for anyone that would like to safely dispose of their expired and/or unused prescription drugs. In collaboration with law enforcement, the coalition has hosted National Take Back Day twice a year in the spring and fall. During the event which is typically between 10:00am and 2:00pm, people are able to take their unused and/or expired prescription medication to participating law enforcement agencies.
