Opioid Toolkit

As part of our commitment to both health partners and members, we want to provide resources that support your professional practice and encourage best practices in opioid use and pain management. Evidence-based medicine does not support long-term opioid treatment for chronic pain. 

Drug Safety: Take Back Programs

Community Drug Take Back Programs can provide the safest opportunity for individuals to dispose of their leftover medications to protect families, those at risk for drug abuse, and our environment.

Members can find a drug take back location near them by going here.

Information on needle exchange programs can be found at here.

Additional guidelines for safe medicine and needle disposal can be found at the FDA website or the EPA website.
