Know RX Logo

Addiction to prescription pain medications, also known as opioids, is a public health emergency in Virginia and a crisis across the nation. Prescription opioid misuse is a significant cause of injury and death in Virginia, accounting for at least 55.5% of all drug/poison deaths in 2014. For many, addiction began with a legal prescription.

A new web site has been developed providing comprehensive information regarding the opioid crisis. Information includes the safe disposal of expired/unwanted prescription drugs, where to receive help, where to receive training on the administration of NARCAN™ and other valuable resources.
