Residents can drive up and drop off their old or unused medications! Please note that needles cannot be accepted.
All collected medication will be safely disposed of by officers from the Nassau County Police Department who will be supervising the program.
Safe disposal helps protect the environment and eliminates the risk of these drugs getting into the hands of small children or those who might misuse them. Improper disposal of medications, such as pouring them down the drain or flushing them down the toilet, can potentially pollute local waterways.

Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose, how opioids affect the body/mind/mood, the steps to respond to an overdose and how to adminster Naloxone. To be eligible for naloxone training, you must be Age 18 or older to receive a Naloxone kit.

TALK2PREVENT ...Yes in College Too!
First Six Weeks are Critical
Although the majority of students come to college already having some experience with alcohol, certain aspects of college life, such as unstructured time, the widespread availability of alcohol, inconsistent enforcement of underage drinking laws, and limited interactions with parents and other adults, can intensify the problem.
The first 6 weeks of freshman year are a vulnerable time for heavy drinking and alcohol-related consequences because of student expectations and social pressures at the start of the academic year. An often-overlooked protective factor involves the continuing influence of parents. Research shows that students who abstain from drinking often do so because their parents discussed alcohol use and its adverse consequences with them (
New York State Office on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services).
During these crucial early weeks, parents can do a number of things to stay involved.
Parents can help by:
- Talking with students about the dangers of harmful and underage college drinking, such as the penalties for underage drinking, and how alcohol use can lead to date rape, violence, and academic failure
- Reaching out periodically and keeping the lines of communication open, while staying alert for possible alcohol-related problems
- Reminding students to feel free to reach out to them to share information about their daily activities, and to ask for help if needed
- Learning about the school's alcohol prevention and emergency intervention efforts and
- Making sure students know signs of alcohol overdose or an alcohol-related problem, and how to help.
