New! Rx Drop Box at Crivitz Pharmacy

The Healthy Youth Coalition of Marinette & Menominee Counties (HYC) has partnered again with Crivitz Pharmacy to install a prescription drug drop box at their facility. In conjunction with HYC’s “LOCK IT. DROP IT. STOP IT.” campaign, having another drop box in our community will increase access to Marinette County residents for proper disposal. Thanks to the “Partnership for Success 2015” Wisconsin State Grant, the coalition purchased the box and will also be able to pay for the destruction fees of the collected medications. HYC and Crivitz Pharmacy is again encouraging residents to please drop off unused and expired medications to keep them out of the hands of youth and abusers. Instructions on what the box will and will not collect are listed on the MedSafe drop box located in the facility. Crivitz Pharmacy will continue to disperse the free medication lock boxes and deactivation bags as part of the campaign. Community members are welcome to visit the pharmacy to pick up any of these items, or to dispose of their medications during business hours to help us fight prescription drug abuse in our community. Drop boxes are also located at all law enforcement agencies in the cities of Marinette and Menominee, and the Hannahville Tribal Police Department in Harris, MI. Special thanks to Crivitz Pharmacy for all of their efforts in our campaign to fight against prescription drug abuse!
