Save Lives & Protect the Environment

  • Flushing unused drugs can contaminate the water supply.

  • Unused drugs disposed of in the trash can be retrieved and abused.

  • Prescription drugs used without a doctor’s supervision can be just as dangerous as street drugs.

  • The majority of teens abusing prescription drugs take them from home medicine cabinets.
