The Substance Use Advisory Commission advocates for a healthy community by promoting best practices for the prevention, intervention and treatment of alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse.
The Raleigh City Council created the commission as an advisory body in June 1990. The creation of the commission helped solidify the city's commitment to a permanent and vigorous effort to eliminate substance abuse.
The commission's activities include an annual pill drop-off, which allows you to drop off your unneeded or expired prescription and over-the-counter pills. Dropping off your medication helps prevent its abuse, theft, and illegal sale. Disposing of it this way also helps keep our water supply safe.
