Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply for the increasing abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in the United States and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.  Bring your medications for disposal to Goffstown Police Department at 326 Mast Rd. Goffstown NH, 03045. No needles or liquids can be accepted. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
