One of the big issues in the opioid epidemic is diversion, or the pilfering of prescribed pain killers from home medicine cabinets … that people illegally give or sell to others. Often, this is done by youth in the home, friends, family, and tradespeople working in homes. We’ve even heard that people tour homes for sale, to steal drugs.
Many of us save opioids thinking one day we’ll need them to relieve pain. And, all too often, we forget we have them.
We ask you to gather your out-of-date and no-longer-needed medications – opioids and other medications … pills, fluids, and ointments – and bring them to church on Saturday, October 8 from 9a to 12p, where the Gaston Controlled Substances Coalition and a law enforcement officer will collect and safely discard them following Drug Enforcement Agency rules.
This will reduce the risk of opioid misuse and, by not flushing these medications, will help protect our waterways.
