Prescription Drug Take Back

More than 70% of people 12 and older who abuse prescription drugs say they get them from a friend or relative*. Twice a year CV CARES hosts a Prescription Drug Take Back. The public is encouraged to drop off unused or expired prescriptions or over the counter medications for proper disposal at no cost.  Illegal substances, syringes/needles, inhalers or glass containers are not accepted. Be a part of the solution by joining the efforts to reduce prescription drug abuse and create a safe, drug-free environment for the Concho Valley youth. A permanent dropbox is also located inside the San Angelo Police Department.
