The drug recycling program at Sentara RMH helps to recycle unused medication and distribute them to those who need them. The program allows for the pharmacy to collect medications that have not been used and are sealed with an expiration date. These medications are then distributed to patients who cannot afford the medication. If there are no patients who can benefit in the local community, SRMH is able to find patients throughout the United States who are in need.
SRMH also participates in a drug take-back program so individuals can safely dispose of unused medications.
