Unfortunately, our RX Take Back Event scheduled for April has been postponed. We have several disposal kiosks located in our community where medication can be disposed of safely. These kiosks are located at the local law enforcement departments (City of Cortland Police Department, Village of Homer Police Department, Cortland County Sheriff’s Office, and SUNY Cortland Police Department) as well as one at the Guthrie Cortland Medical Center Emergency Room.

Cortland Prevention Resources provides evidence-based drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention services and educational programs for children, teens, adults and families. We collaborate with other Cortland County agencies, school districts and businesses to promote positive change and build healthy communities through educational programs, workshops and training. We work on policy and enforcement efforts to reduce underage drinking and create positive alternative activities for youth. Cortland Prevention Resources is a division of Family & Children's Counseling Services.
