Do you have unused medications taking up space in your medicine cabinet? Your half empty pill bottles may not be bothering you much but in some cases could lead to unintended consequences.
With opioid abuse on the rise, it’s imperative that we safely discard of any unused pills, liquids or patches.
In an effort to effectively dispose of old medications across the county, the Fremont County Prevention Program and Public Health are sponsoring Drug Take-Back events. The first Take-Back event is scheduled for March 26th from 11:30a-12:30p, in Dubois.
A Public Health nurse will be available to answer questions and determine if the medications can be used for the Wyoming Medication Donation Program or if they should be deactivated and disposed of. Medications will be disposed of on site with Deterra kits. Extra kits will be available.
Below is a list of future Drug Take-Back events happening across the county. Call the corresponding number to reserve your lunch, (prices vary).
