Partnering with law enforcement, our community drug take back events aim to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. Check our Event Calendar or contact us about upcoming drug take back events!
Lock Your Meds® is a national multi-media campaign produced by National Family Partnership®(NFP). It is designed to reduce prescription drug abuse by making adults aware that they are the “unwitting suppliers” of prescription medications being used in unintended ways, especially by young people. Contact us for lock boxes, bags and bottles to keep your medications secure and out of the wrong hands.
If a law enforcement officer encounters a child during a call, that child’s information is forwarded to the school before the school bell rings the next day. The school implements individual, class and whole school trauma-sensitive curricula so that traumatized children are “Handled With Care". If a child needs more intervention, on-site trauma-focused mental healthcare is available at the school.
Naloxone (aka Narcan) is a medication called an ‘opioid antagonist,’ and can save someone who may be experiencing an overdose from opiates such as pain pills or heroin. Naloxone is available for those at risk of overdose and for family members who have a loved one who may be at risk for overdose.
Naloxone is available at free or reduced rates.
Recipients must attend medication education regarding proper dosage and administration.
