Prescription Drug Disposal

Medications in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisonings. When they are flushed down the toilet or discarded in the trash, they can cause water pollution and affect the environment. Prescription drug abuse rates are high across the country, with over 1/2 of teens who abuse drugs getting them from a family member or friend's home. Clean out your cabinet and visit one of these sites: 

Bethany-CSP Troop 1, 631 Amity Road, Bethany. There is a permanent drug drop box located here. You do not have to be a resident of Bethany. 

Hamden has an on-going drug take back program with a box located in the police department lobby.
