Responsible Opioid Use & DisposalSep 13, 2022
Our healthcare system has a problem pushing pills.
We are overprescribed. Please check out my previous video on this. https://youtu.be/DlO5HRGtCCs
If you have a need to dispose of prescriptions,
Don't flush them, the chemicals stay in the water and can eventually end up back in our system
Take them to your local police or fire station
Take them to an approved location for drop off https://www.dea.gov/takebackday
It is possible to use pain pills responsibly but it means there will be some pain. The goal should not be ZERO pain because you will never know how long you can go in between pills. The other dynamic is that pain is different for each individual and your pain may be more psychosocial that physical.
