Medication Safety Tips:

Proper, safe disposal of medications helps to keep our community safe, but also protects our environment! 
Thank you to the Raymond Police Department for the availability of the medication disposal box in their lobby, available 24/7, and it's FREE. 

All contents of the box are incinerated. No need to remove labels from prescription bottles. Your privacy is guaranteed. 

Here is a resource tree for those struggling with Heroin/Opioid addiction and looking for help and treatment:

As you may know, the Raymond Coalition for Youth has formed a Heroin/Drug Task Force for our community. The purpose is:

  • To help break the stigma about addiction and substance misuse so those in need will seek services and resources.
  • To increase access to resources in our community to help individuals and families struggling with substance misuse and addiction.
We recognize that this concern is going to take all corners of our community working together to address it successfully and bring Hope and help to everyone effected by it.  The most successful and cost effective strategy is prevention. 

Take a look at the videos that members of our Heroin Task Force produced in 2016, with the help of Raymond Community Television:
