STOP will work to bring education and awareness to Stokes County citizens regarding proper use, storage and disposal of prescription drugs and other medication, ultimately creating a safer, healthier environment in our homes and community.

 


 FACT :     In the US alone, more than 15 million people abuse prescription drugs, more than the combined number who reported abusing cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin. Check out More.


 

S.T.O.P.

 

 Secure your medication in a dry, locked location.  

(Bathroom medicine cabinets are often moist and easily accessible by children, family members and the first place a drug seeker would look.)

Take medication as prescribed by your health care professional.

0nly take medication prescribed specifically for YOU

       Don’t take other people’s medication; NOT even family. Don’t share your medication.

Pack up old and no longer needed medications and take them to the disposal locations listed on the site.
