Disposing of Medications Safely

Have you ever stopped to think about how to safely dispose of your medications? For many people the answer is no. MATFORCE and the Senior Peer Program are working together to change that. MATFORCE, the Yavapai County Substance Abuse Coalition, was formed by community members concerned about the devastating legal, physical and personal effects of substance abuse upon our community.  MATFORCE is one of our community partners.
