Medication Safety

About 165 young kids are seen in emergency rooms after getting into medications every day in the U.S.  Disposing of unused or expired medications properly is the most beneficial way to prevent such accidents from occurring.  One way to safely dispose of the medication is to contact your local police department and ask when they are sponsoring their Drug Drops throughout the year.  Carrboro Police Department and Chapel Hill Police Department now have their own drug drop boxes located in their main offices for the public.  Using the drug drop box will be completely confidential and free.
