What is Gone for Good?

Gone for Good is a program that focuses on identifying opportunities to reduce our environmental impact while partnering with community associates to promote safe medication disposal.

Why do we offer this?


For over three decades, medications have been showing up in water ways and continue to impact our natural environments. This initiative reduces environmental impacts of improperly disposed of medications.


We focus on providing information and resources to properly dispose of medications so they do not end up in the wrong hands or taken by the wrong individual.


What is an opioid or controlled substance? This program aims to educate about medications and related safety concerns.
