During today’s Community Coalitions of Virginia summit at Hotel Roanoke, the local “Urgent Love” campaign that is working to fight the opioid crisis announced a program where independent pharmacies can install a DEA-compliant prescription drug drop-boxes for as little as 50 dollars a month. Community Coalitions of Virginia reports that only 7 percent of all pharmacies in the region have drop-boxes where unused prescription drugs can be returned. 40 percent of all opioid fatalities are from prescribed medications, according to the Coalition. Walt Boyle is a strategist for                                             Urgent  Love.
