SOS Berks coalition members recently put together 250 packets chock-full of information on medication safety for the Reading-Berks Association of REALTORS. The packets will now be distributed to realtors, who can offer them to clients moving into homes or apartments in Berks County.
Each packet contains literature detailing Medication Drop Box locations in Berks County, as well as information on how county residents and businesses can get free Narcan kits and free medication lock boxes and disposal bags. In addition, the packets include a rack card with general information about opioid drugs, along with phone numbers and addresses for addiction help and recovery support.
SOS Berks hopes the packets will raise awareness of the need to secure and dispose of medications safely, while also providing county residents with the tools they need to prevent accidental or intentional misuse of medications.
