BACODA's Community Coalitions have been working to prevent prescription drug abuse for several years. We are proud to partner with local law enforcement in Alvin, Angleton, Bay City, Baytown, Clute, Dickinson, Freeport, Galveston, La Marque, La Porte, Lake Jackson, Richwood, Santa Fe, Sweeny, and Wharton to place permanent prescription drug drop boxes. This allows citizens to drop of prescription and over-the-counter medications for safe disposal at any time.  The service is free, no questions asked. 

Interested in permanent disposal drop box for your community?

If you have questions about this program or if you are interested in finding out more about how you could get a permanent disposal prescription drug drop box in your community email coalitions@bacoda.org.
You could be a drug dealer
and not even know it.
Every day 2,500 teenagers use a prescription medication to get high for the first time. 

More than half of all teens who misuse prescription drugs got them from the family medicine cabinet.
When it comes to prescription drugs in your home, remember to be SAFE.
