Medicine Take Back
Local and state police partner with Collaborating For Youth (CFY), local government and environmental agencies, community volunteers and various health organizations to sponsor Adams County's Medication TAKE BACK at several locations throughout Adams County. This Medication TAKE BACK provides an opportunity for Adams County residents and doctor offices to dispose of unused or expired medications safely. The collection is free and no questions are asked.
Parents Who Host Lose The Most
The "Parents Who Host, Lose The Most: Don't be a party to teenage drinking" public awareness campaign was developed by Drug Free Action Alliance in 2000 to educate parents about the health and safety risks of serving alcohol at teen parties and to increase awareness of and compliance with the Pennsylvania Underage Drinking Laws.
Project Sticker Shock
Project Sticker Shock is coordinated locally by Collaborating For Youth (CFY) and the Adams County Substance Abuse Prevention Program, and is designed to raise public awareness of the law and to reduce/eliminate access to alcohol by minors - particularly during times that may trigger underage alcohol use.
Personal Medication Lockbox
Personal Medication Lockboxes are available for low income individuals or families who take medically prescribed medications and where there is a safety risk or risk of diversion. 70% of persons addicted to pain medications said that they got their medications from unsuspecting family and friends.
Along with the box recipients will receive information on Count It, Lock It, Drop It which encourages safe medication practices. Funding was provided by WellSpan Foundation.
