Imagine our strength when we work together

Opioids are powerful painkillers that help with pain when taken as prescribed, and prescribed correctly. When misused, they can lead to addiction and even death.

 

In Arizona, we’ve seen 36,175 suspected opioid overdoses from June 2017 through February 2020—less than three years. Of these suspected overdoses, 4,357 were fatal.1

Safe and easy drug disposal

Have you stopped taking a prescription opioid?

Don’t just toss unused drugs in the trash or dump prescriptions down the drain. It’s not safe for the environment. To prevent visitors, children, and pets from having access, turn in your unused or expired prescriptions at a drug take-back kiosk.
