A note from the Athens Addiction Awareness Council:
Did you know that a common cause of opioid addiction is left-over prescription medication? That’s because friends or family members may gain access to addictive medication and abuse it without your knowledge. So, help fight the opioid epidemic by inactivating unwanted and unfinished prescriptions in special disposal bags available in the Village of Athens. Bags are available at the Village Office, The Athens Volunteer Fire Dept. and the Athens Police Department. However, we have a limited number available at this time.
