Medications play a pivotal role in our wellness, allowing us to improve our quality of life. Yet some medications have the potential to harm as well as to heal. Join Volition Franklin and the Franklin Health Department as we welcome Certified Senior Advisor, Claire Sedushak who understands the perils and pitfalls of this challenging balance.
You will learn how to:
- Ask the right questions when prescribed an opioid medication—the potential for abuse, the risk of dependency, whether other medications are just as effective.
- Manage multiple medications while avoiding the risk of interactions and side effects for living a better quality of life.
- Implement a proven system for regularly taking medications to improve your wellness.
- Avoid problems with vitamins and supplements which can impact your medications.
- Safely store and dispose of your unused medications

Alcohol availability and easy access to alcohol are related to greater consumption of alcohol and alcohol- related problems among adolescents.
Throughout the months of December and January, Volition is implementing a community wide campaign focused on raising awareness of the dangers of underage drinking and how to take steps to prevent alcohol from being misused.
Prescription opioid abuse is a problem we are facing here in Wisconsin. To raise awareness and educate community members, Volition Franklin is sponsoring the showing of one of the Dose of Reality campaign PSAs at our local theater before each movie for the next month!
