Medication Collection Program

 Why Are We Collecting?

  • Over 50% of people who abuse prescription pain relievers get them from friends or relatives.

  • Prescription and over-the-counter drugs are the most commonly misused substances by Americans age 14 and older, after marijuana and alcohol.

  • When drugs are flushed down the toilet, filters may not remove all of the chemicals.

  • Vaping is an emerging method of drug use and a public health threat to Bucks County.
