Kentucky AG and CVS team up for 24-hour opioid and medication disposal
Andy Beshear says each day four people in Kentucky die from and overdose.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky will soon offer a place to dispose of medications 24 hours a day.
Attorney General Andy Beshear announced a partnership for opioid disposal with CVS Health to help fight the drug crisis.
CVS is setting up nine locations in Kentucky with a kiosk where they can dispose of medicines including opioids. The kiosks will be located in Louisville, Elizabethtown and Lexington, Frankfort, Georgetown and other locations.
Beshear says each day four Kentuckians die from overdosing. And more children are in foster care than ever before because parents are addicted.
"The most dangerous place in all of our homes -- the most likely place to cause addiction for our kids and our grandkids -- is the medicine cabinet," Beshear said.
CVS will install about 750 disposal kiosks across the country.
