Putnam County Partners in Prevention will promote healthy lifestyles and strong families in our community through education, awareness, alternative activities, and advocacy.



Putnam County Partners in Prevention’s vision is to achieve a healthy, caring community.

PCPP organized in the fall of 2007 from the merger of two previously existing coalitions in our community. The coalition has over fifteen local members from several sectors of the community. They meet every other month on a Tuesday, usually at the health department conference room.


Annual Events


Daddy Daughter Dance and Mother Son Adventure

These events promote protective factors and reduce risk factors by providing an event where participants can interact in a safe environment to bond, open lines of communication, and foster relationship building.


Prescription Drop Box

The local Prescription Drop Box at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office was acquired with the assistance of PCPP.

Do you have bottles of medicine that you don’t know what to do with?

Turn in your used, expired, or unwanted medications at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department.

Why? For several reasons….

  • 1 in 6 children have used a prescription drug that does not belong to them in order to get high or change their mood. Medications in our homes are easy for kids to get their hands on.
  • To avoid accidental poisonings. Young children and animals can get ahold of medications laying around your home.
  • Keep it out of our drinking water. Water plants do not have the ability to filter medications out of our drinking water.
  • Drugs dumped in trash end up in landfills; becoming a danger to wildlife and eventually ending up in our water.
