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.  

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.

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.
