Volition Franklin hosted a resource table as well as a medication collection in partnership with the Franklin Police Department at the 2018 Adult Health and Wellness Fair. Over 500 attendees were at the fair.
The medication collection facilitated by the Police Officers allowed individuals to drop off their unused or expired medications. Our resource table offered information about our coalition, the local drug drop box, and also provided a variety of at home drug disposal methods. Our coalition distributed Deterra® drug disposal pouches, timercaps to secure medication, and postage paid mail back envelopes for those who may be homebound or unable to make it to a drop box location.
Volition Franklin also administered a survey which was completed by 137 individuals. The four question survey focused on opioids and proper disposal.
