CVS Health expands medication disposal kiosks
CVS Health has expanded its medication disposal program to include locations inside CVS Pharmacy stores. The safe medication disposal kiosks inside 750 CVS Pharmacy locations will add to the more than 800 units CVS Health has donated to law enforcement officials across the country, which have collected more than 100 metric tons of unwanted medication.
Properly disposing of unused medications can reduce the risk of misuse, abuse or diversion.
"Solving the opioid crisis will not be easy and it will take the concerted effort of patients, providers, payors, pharmacies, advocacy organizations, elected officials and community leaders," Thomas M. Moriarty, executive vice president, chief policy and external affairs officer and general counsel, CVS Health, said in the press release.
CVS Health unveiled its first disposal units inside CVS Pharmacy locations in Wilmington, North Carolina and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the end of October.
