It’s full of information on safe disposal locations for prescription medication, where to find counseling or treatment services, and general information on the epidemic.

“With the opioid use, really epidemic in the nation, this is a good place to go, we can get factual information out for folks, Sara Sircely with NMRE said.

Help is available for folks, we want to help people, they’re not alone.”
