The Linn County Health Department partners with local school and law enforcement to provide education about the rising issues associated with over-the-counter and prescription drug abuse.
This is becoming a nation-wide issue; parents and teens check out this site and learn the reality behind prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse!
It is important to dispose of these medications properly; at times the county has drug take-back days, watch our website for further information on these events. For more information on disposal of medications visit the Missouri Department of Natural Resources at www.dnr.mo.gov or follow the link: http://dnr.mo.gov/pubs/pub2291.pdf
