Volition Franklin worked directly with Ascension SE Wisconsin Hospital- Franklin Campus to address opioid safety in the community.
Volition Franklin and Ascension Franklin worked together to supply community members who use the Franklin pharmacy on the Ascension campus with TimerCAP bottles. Volition Franklin funded 500 TimerCaps for distribution to the Franklin community. TimerCAPs can be used as a tool to help the consumer track how much time has passed since the bottle was last opened. This helps patients take their medications on time and avoid potential misuse.
Additionally, Ascension Franklin helped distribute informational sheets created by the coalition that remind community members about the 24 hour drug drop box location at the Franklin Police Department, located at 9455 W Loomis Road, and what can and cannot go into this drop box. By working together as a community and utilizing proper disposal techniques, we can get unused and expired medications out of our homes and communities and decrease the potential for misuse.
