Cayuga Family Medicine takes drug abuse and misuse very seriously.  It is always advised that you follow the directions of our nurses and doctors.  Ithaca, NY residents are not immune to drug addiction.  We have seen in close to home.  Preventing the problem begins with removing temptation.  If you have unused, outdated, our unneeded medications in your home, be sure to bring them to one of the county’s year-round drop boxes, so they can be disposed of properly.

If you think you may be struggling with addiction, please contact the Alcohol and Drug Council or Cayuga Addiction Recovery Services.
