RX Drop Box Program

Prescription opiates are often the gateway to heroin addiction. Prescription opiates are commonly found in many medicine cabinets. Pills left unattended in a bathroom or medicine cabinet can be easily taken and misused. It is vital that old prescriptions be properly disposed to keep one’s family and friends safe.

The Orange Village Drop Box is located in the Police Department.
