ADAMH Distributing 5,000 Safe Medication Disposal Bags
“We need you to go through your medicine cabinet and decrease our active supply of opioids,” said David Royer, ADAMH Board of Franklin County CEO.
We are working to make this process easier for Franklin County residents by distributing 5,000 bags that contain a material that, when mixed with water, deactivates the drugs. Bags will be available at community events and given to Franklin County Public Health and Columbus Public Health departments to distribute at Naloxone training. You can also get your own safe medication disposal bag by filling out the form below.
Distributing these safe medication disposal bags is part of an action outlined in the Franklin County Opiate Action Plan.
