Prescription medication may be dropped off in Bowling Green at Wood County Hospital, 950 West Wooster St.; Wood County Sheriff's Office, 1960 East Gypsy Lane Rd., or Behavioral Connections, 1010 North Prospect St.; in Perrysburg at Behavioral Connections, 27072 Carronade Dr., or in North Baltimore at the police department, 203 North Main St.
