CVS Health Corp. has installed units for the safe disposal of medication inside two CVS Pharmacy locations in New Hampshire, expanding its program that facilitates proper disposal of opioids and other medications, the company said March 21.
The units were installed inside CVS locations at 242 Main St. in Nashua and 268 W. Street in Keene, both 24-hour pharmacies. CVS also donated 15 disposal units to police departments in New Hampshire and more than 850 units to police departments in the U.S.
The move is part of the company's announced measures to combat opioid addiction in the U.S.
The drugstore chain also committed more than $60,000 in funding to SOS Recovery Community Organization, Hope on Haven Hill and Concord Hospital, which are all involved in opioid abuse prevention.
