New local prescription drop box installed
On Aug. 12, the Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse of the Coastal Bend installed a prescription drop box inside of the Ingleside Police Department. The project was a coordinated effort, with the Community Coalition Partnership, the Youth Continuum of Care Coalition and the City of Ingleside Police Department contributing. The intent of the box is to encourage citizens to properly and safely dispose of any prescription medications they have lying around their homes. Donine Schwartz works for the Youth Continuing Care Coalition, and spearheaded much of the promotion for the project.
