Safe Medication Disposal
The Healthy Cabarrus Substance Use Coalition advocates the safe disposal of medication through the Medicine Drop Box Program. Disposing unused/expired medication can help save lives and keep our communities safe.
Why is proper disposal important?
67% of people who abuse prescription drugs get them from friends or relatives.
1 in 6 North Carolina teens use prescription drugs to get high.
Unintentional poisonings are the 2nd leading cause of injury death in the state after motor vehicle accidents.
Safely dispose unused/expired medication at one of your local drop boxes. See photo for local drop box locations in Cabarrus County as well as the types of medications that can be disposed.
