Plymouth County Outreach team members work tirelessly to break down the stigmas associated with substance use disorder. We attend resources fairs, police days and other community events as well as hosting bi-annual drug take back events to promote the disposal of unused, unwanted and expired mediations.
Over the last year PCO has collected 120 pounds of mediations during drug take back days.
