Walmart to Provide Powder Packet to Help Customers Safely Dispose of Opioids
Walmart will give customers filling opioid prescriptions a packet of powder they can use to safely dispose of leftover medication, Reuters reports.
Ohio Governor John R. Kasich has announced $36 million in new drug treatment and work readiness funds. The funds are designed to help people addicted to prescription drugs get treatment so they can go back to work.
The governor also announced the creation of Opiate Task Forces in 23 Ohio counties designed to provide education and prevention to end the use of opiates as a drug of abuse.
