The lock box initiative provides free lock boxes to anyone who requests them, at community events and to community partners. Each lock box is the size a lunchbox, is marked with the BASE logo and has a programmable combination lock.
Lock boxes can be picked up at the BASE offices (112 W. Church St, above Magic Moments Daycare), Monday – Friday from 8AM-3PM.
The purpose of the medication lockbox program is to affect the number of medications that are being diverted from house-holds by implementing the comprehensive initiative in the community.
Contained within each box is:
- Information about medication misuse/abuse
- How/where to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medication
- How to return the box if it’s no longer needed
- A utilization survey
REMEMBER! It is important to do your part to keep prescription drug medications out of your homes; out of our water; out of the reach of children! Are you wanting to introduce the Lock Box Initiative in your community? Contact BASE to get started!
Lock boxes are also available at the Evansville Police Department or at Creekside Place in Evansville!
