The National Opioid Crisis continues to be a major health problem. We’ve learned that addiction can happen to anyone anywhere and we need to continually rid our medication cabinets of any drugs that are no longer needed or become outdated. In response, the Residents’ Council Health Committee continues to partner with Charlestown’s Security and Emergency Services and the Baltimore County Police Department in holding dedicated collection days of old/unused medication.
Medication Disposal Day will be held four times a year on Mondays, from 1 – 3 PM. Disposal locations will be at the Fireside and Terrace lounges and at Cross Creek lobby.
This will give all of our residents and staff another opportunity to dispose of unwanted and outdated medications in a safe and secure manner without the need to leave the campus. In addition to prescription drugs, over the counter medications, vitamins and supplements, and pet medications will also be accepted for disposal.
