Drug Take-Back Program


CVS Pharmacy, as part of their partnership with Drugfree.org, has donated a medication disposal unit through a property grant to the Brownwood Police Department. 
We are grateful and thank CVS Pharmacy for their generous donation to help our community prevent prescription drug abuse. The CVS Pharmacy Medication Disposal for Safer Communities Program is part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to combat prescription drug abuse. The goal of the program is to keep drugs out of the hands of younger people in an effort to help with prescription drug abuse. Each year in the United States, more than 71,000 children aged 18 and younger are seen in emergency rooms for unintentional overdoses of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. In addition, keeping medications from entering our precious water supply is a key goal of using the disposal unit.  
The container is located in the lobby of the Law Enforcement Center, located at 1050 W. Commerce in Brownwood. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will help not only keep prescription drugs out of the hands of the youth of the community, but also helps to keep the water supply and landfill safe. The gift of the container is through the cooperative effort by CVS and is an example of the company’s commitment of keeping the community safe and helping prevent drug abuse.
