Vaccine rollout details

Prescription and Illicit Drugs

 

Both legal and illegal drugs can be used in a way that is harmful to the individual using the substance or to others. The links below provide information about the short-term and long-term effects of substances.

 

Do you have unused or expired medications? Not sure what to do with them?

You can return medications and sharps to a pharmacy in your community through programs offered by the health products industries called Ontario Medications Return Program (OMRP) and the Ontario Sharps Collection Program (OSCP). When you drop off your medications and sharps, you'll not only ensure they're disposed of properly – you'll also keep them out of the wrong hands, preventing abuse or accidental ingestion or injuries – and protecting our environment in the process.
