Community agencies have reported a rise in substance abuse because of quarantine and the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have expired or unused medications in your home, it may be time to get rid of them so they aren’t a temptation to others.
Margaret Mary is proud to partner with several local organizations to offer drug take-back events throughout Ripley & Franklin counties. Simply drive through and drop your expired or unused medication in a collection box without ever leaving your vehicle.
