Gone for Good is a medication disposal awareness and educational program that focuses on identifying opportunities to reduce our environmental impact while partnering with community associates to promote safe medication disposal.
Why is safe medication disposal so important?
Environmental goals & impact
- For over three decades medications have been showing up in water ways and continue to impact our natural environments. This initiative reduces environmental impacts of medications that are flushed down a toilet or thrown in the garbage.
Safety goals & impact
- We focus on providing information and locations to properly dispose of medications so they do not end up in the wrong hands or taken by the wrong individual.
Education goals & impact
- What is an opioid or controlled substance? This program aims to educate about medications and related safety concerns.
