Greenview Hospital holds drug take back event to combat opioid crisis

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- An event called Crush the Crisis Opioid Take Back will take place at TriStar Greenview Regional Hospital.

Saturday, TriStar Greenview will join other Hospital Corporation of America facilities to host this event. Law enforcement will also be joining in to assist in the collection of unused opioids. This will ensure that they are disposed of in a safe manner and not diverted to the black market or land in hands of kids.

The event is free and will start at 10 a.m. The drop off site will be under the hospital tent at the main visitor entrance.

Marketing and communications specialist for TriStar Greenview, Andria McGregor, said she’s glad this event is being held.

“TriStar Greenview is proud to partner with our local law enforcement to give our community a safe and anonymous way to dispose of medications that may be left over,” McGregor said.
