Safe Medication Disposal in the Monadnock Region & NH
Medications are vital to the health and well-being of many people; however, access and availability of unused medications is a growing concern in the Monadnock Region and throughout the nation due to
1) rising misuse of certain prescription and over-the-counter medications leading to injury and addiction, especially among youth,
2) the presence of pharmaceuticals in our water supply even after it has been treated, and
3) high rates of accidental poisonings from medications, especially among children and pets.
