The Drug Enforcement Agency has partnered with pharmacies and police stations throughout our community to collect and safely dispose of your unwanted medications.

Disposing of unused and unwanted medications is an excellent way to prevent abuse.

Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), over 50,000 people died from lethal drug overdoses in 2015. You can help to counteract this disturbing trend by properly disposing of your unused and unneeded prescription medications.
