Prescription Medication

America's 12 to 17 years old made prescription drugs the number one substance of abuse for their age group, and much of that supply is unwittingly coming from the medicine cabinets of their parents, grandparents, and friends. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home and legally and safely turn them in for proper disposal.

Learn how to properly dispose of unused, unwanted and expired medications in Prescription Drug Drop Boxes.
