Medication Disposal

Seniors vs. Crime and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office work closely with the Gateway Impact Coalition, a community coalition dedicated to finding and implementing solutions to substance abuse issues.

Of particular concern to Seniors vs. Crime is the issue of prescription drug abuse and misuse. Senior citizens account for 13% of the population but account for one-third of medications prescribed in the US. We work to educate the senior citizen community on:

  • securing their medications to prevent theft or diversion
  • monitoring those medications to avoid misuse
  • properly disposing of unneeded medications, which prevents them from falling into the hands of abusers, and keeps them out of groundwater and water supply, thus diminishing contamination of this critical community resource.
