Now in its second year, the Campaign to "Attack" Medication Misuse offered participants a free voucher to an Owen Sound Attack hockey game in exchange for the return of unused medication.
The campaign supports the proper disposal and storage of medication and reduces the amount of unused and expired medication, especially opioid pain relievers.
A significant amount of opioids and controlled substances were among the 236 expired and unused medications returned.
The campaign also prevented these drugs from ending up in landfills or flushed down the toilet and ultimately in our water system.
Unused medication should always be returned to a pharmacy for proper disposal.
