Here at Highland Cashiers Hospital, we’re committed to improving more lives in more ways. That’s why on Saturday, October 29, 2022 we’re partnering with local law enforcement agencies to host Crush the Crisis opioid take back events.
HCA Healthcare’s Crush the Crisis events will align with National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, sponsored by The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
HCA Healthcare is committed to bringing frontline solutions to curb the tide of opioid misuse and addiction in the communities that we serve. COVID-19 has exacerbated the opioid epidemic, and the effort to crush the crisis is now more important than ever.
Please help us by encouraging the community to safely and anonymously drop off unused and expired medication for proper disposal on Saturday, October 29, 2022 at one of our participating collection site:
The focus of the event is to collect tablets, capsules and patches of Hydrocodone (Norco, Lortab, Vicodin), Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet), Tramadol (Ultram), Codeine, Fentanyl (Duragesic), Morphine, Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) and Oxymorphone (Opana). However, any medications are accepted.
We will not be able to accept needles, syringes, lancets, inhalers or liquids.
To help keep members of our communities safe, Crush the Crisis Opioid Take Back Day events will adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention safety protocols to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
