Additionally, ADAPT encourages community members to take the time to rid homes of potentially dangerous expired and unused over-the-counter and prescription drugs by cleaning out medicine cabinets and properly disposing of the medications in one of the six permanent medication disposal boxes in Taney County.

Did you know that 53 percent of misused prescription drugs come from family and friends? The source of those prescription drugs is often the home medicine cabinet. You could be a drug dealer and not even know it.
