Attorney General Curtis Hill joined CVS Health officials Thursday at a press conference to discuss the pharmacy company’s plans to create drug-disposal collection points at 49 CVS Pharmacy stores in Indiana. CVS Health is replicating these actions at 750 locations nationwide. This initiative complements the Attorney General’s ongoing efforts to reduce the amount of unused and unneeded prescription medication lingering in Hoosier households. These sheriffs’ offices, police departments and all of the new CVS locations can be found on a new section of the Indiana Attorney General’s web site. Go to in.gov/attorneygeneral and click on the “alert” at the top of the home page. There you can easily find a drug disposal location near your home or business. At the event, CVS Health also announced a grant to support the Riley Children’s Health Adolescent Dual Diagnosis Program. The program supports local opioid recovery efforts, providing an integrated intervention for children and adolescents with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health problems.
