Reducing access to unwanted medication is now a national public health and safety strategy. Many Americans are not aware that medicines in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Many studies show that almost half of youth who have misused prescription medications gained fist access from medicine cabinets of family of friends. There is a drop off box at the Beverly Police Station and Beverly Hospital.
