Partnership Provides Disposal for Controlled Substances
The Wyoming Medication Donation Program, Health Care Innovation Award, and Wyoming Association of Sherriff's and Chiefs of Police recently partnered together to provide portable incinerators to three remote drug drop box regions in Wyoming. The drug drop boxes, located in 38 law enforcement locations throughout Wyoming, provide drug disposal for unused medications, especially targeting disposal of unused controlled substance, a service the Wyoming Medication Donation Program cannot provide.
Disposal of controlled substances (e.g. medications for pain, sleep, anxiety, ADHD) is an effective method to reduce drug abuse, drug diversion, and accidental poisonings.
All drug drop box collections are destroyed. It is important to donate usable items (sealed, in-date, and non-narcotic medications) at a local medication donation site to prevent disposal of valuable items that can help those in need.
