RX CARES FOR MISSOURI

In 2017, the Missouri General Assembly passed legislation that provides funding for local pharmacies to establish and maintain a permanent medication drop box at their location. The ADAPT Coalition is partnering with students from the Branson Go CAPS chapter to educate local pharmacies about this funding opportunity and support them throughout the application process.

GENERATION RX TRAININGS

The mission of Generation Rx is to educate people of all ages about the potential dangers of misusing prescription medications and the ADAPT Coalition is pleased to be able to help spread that mission. Through community trainings, partnerships with area schools, and volunteers certified to present the training, the coalition champions evidence-based educational programming, such as this, to prevent youth substance misuse!

MEDICATION LOCK BOXES

According to nationwide statistics, 53% of misused prescription medications come from family and friends. In order to reduce youth access, the coalition partners with area agencies to provide medication lock boxes for Taney County families in order to secure both over the counter and prescription medications. To request a limited availability lock box, click the image to fill out the form.
