Drug Take-Back Boxes
Drug take-back boxes are available across the state for residents to dispose of unneeded prescriptions.
The availability of drug take-back boxes gets unwanted or unneeded prescription drugs out of homes. Search for prescription drug take-back locations in your county by using either your zip code or your county.
If you have insurance, your coverage for treatment and the requirements to access treatment depends on the type of insurance you have and the applicable laws and regulations. The Pennsylvania Insurance Department developed a Consumer Guide to Health Insurance Coverage to help.
Uninsured or underinsured individuals seeking treatment should contact their local Single County Authority for funding assistance.
