Help stop potential drug abuse and save lives by
turning in unwanted and expired medications!
Rockwood Drug-Free Coalition collaborates with area Police Departments, municipalities and the Drug Enforcement Administration to provide fall and spring medication take-back events each year. Residents take advantage of these opportunities to properly dispose of expired or unwanted medications, making their homes safer while protecting the environment. Over 6,500 pounds of prescription and over-the-counter medication have been collected from Rockwood community homes during the past three years.
