We must get unused prescription drugs out of the home. 80% of heroin users first got hooked on prescription painkillers.
You can dispose of your unused prescription drugs at State Police HQ on Route 7 (next to the sports Dome). There is a drop box in the front lobby, open 24/7. No needles!
A few area pharmacies now accept them, too. Crestwood Pharmacy in Albany, Marra's Pharmacy in Cohoes, Four Corners Pharmacy in Delmar and the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences’ student-run pharmacy in Albany’s South End.
